African Parks

Saving wildlife and wild places across Africa

African Parks is a non-profit conservation organization that takes on the complete responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of national parks and proteced areas in partnership with governments and local communities. With the largest counter-poaching force in Africa (currently more than 800 rangers are on staff) and more than six million hectares being conserved (the most amount of area under protection for any one NGO on the continent) African Parks manages 10 national parks and protected areas in seven countries: Malawi, Zambia, Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Chad. Among the parks we manage, we are protecting more than 15,000 elephants, important local populations of rhinos, lions, gorillas, and a host of other critically threatened species.

Combining world-class conservation practice with business expertise, we place emphasis on achieving financial sustainability of the parks and in creating a foundation for economic development and poverty alleviation. By making these parks socially and economically viable, particularly for the benefit of local communities, they stand the greatest chance of survial in the face of competing forms of land use.
