THE STORY:

You can help protect one of the world's most beautiful and diverse habitats when you Adopt an Acre® today.

Lions, cheetahs, elephants, and zebras — these are only some of the iconic animals that roam the grasslands and savannas of Eastern and Southern Africa. For the millions who live here, these fertile lands and waters are the lifeblood of the region.

Shaped over millions of years by volcanoes, droughts and fires, the grasslands and savannas of Africa are home to a stunning array of wildlife. From the acacia-rich savannas of Kenya to the lush, wet grasslands of Zambia, these vibrant landscapes are home to a wealth of animals found nowhere else on Earth. Living alongside this rich diversity of wildlife are 40 million people who rely on this region for food, water and their livelihoods.

With a strong network of partners, including the African Wildlife Foundation, the Lewa Conservancy and the Northern Rangelands Trust, The Nature Conservancy is working to protect Africa’s grasslands and savannas. We are doing this in a variety of ways, such as:

- Acquiring land
- Securing wildlife corridors
- Increasing staffing for protected areas
- Strengthening conservation management on 2 million acres of protected and private lands
- Providing conservation training and technology for local land trusts
- Developing sustainable income opportunities for local families through innovative conservation lease programs

Charitable gifts to The Nature Conservancy should be directed to the Conservancy’s official online donation website, http://www.nature.org/donate. For questions about payments make through Crowdrise, visit, http://www.crowdrise.com/about/terms, to Crowdrise.coms.
