Connected natural landscapes for resilient societies
Conserve builds strong local institutions with robust governance, capacity and financial resilience. These deliver effective management of natural landscapes beyond national parks to unlock their enduring value for people.
Saving precious tracts of wilderness before it’s too late.

Until recently, concessions were largely used for safari hunting, but the decline of hunting has left many of these areas abandoned, unmanaged and economically fallow.

The hunting debate rages without awareness of the impending loss of many of Africa’s incredibly valuable concessions. Conserve Global is looking beyond the rhetoric to focus on the importance of securing healthy ecosystems as a foundational requirement for Africa’s future.

Conserve aims to expand Africa’s conservation footprint and nature-based economy by supporting the establishment of community-initiated conservancies in the buffer zones adjacent to thriving concessions.

The solution benefits both Africa’s people and her wilderness

Habitat protection goes hand-in-hand with poverty alleviation in Africa. By setting up conservation landscapes as an economically competitive form of land use that directly benefits rural communities, we simultaneously secure protected areas and improve the well-being of the most vulnerable rural populations.

Expanding land under conservation

18 African countries have signed the High Ambition Coalition’s vision of 30% protected areas by 2030. Humanity is compelled to re-engineer its relationship with nature and a massive opportunity exists to work with rural communities to establish new conservancies that simultaneously grow the protected area estate and unlock value for people through effective conservation management.

With state protected land already under pressure, the surest way to safeguard important landscapes and expand Africa’s conservation footprint is by working with communities as nature’s ultimate beneficiaries and custodians.

Solving people problems
with conservation outcomes

Food and water security are very real issues for mil­lions of people on the continent, but habitat destruction is not the answer. It may deliver short-term gains but will ultimately condemn millions of people to long-term poverty and misery. It is an unassailable truth that long-term human well-being requires intact and functioning ecosystems that underpin food and water security and all other essential ecosystem services.

Exciting news! We've just launched our latest impact report at Conserve, and we're thrilled to share our progress in empowering local communities through community-based natural resource management. At Conserve, we believe that conservation efforts must be driven by the people and institutions rooted in the communities that depend on and coexist with the natural environment. Our approach enables us to build strong partnerships with communities, invest in local talent and leaders, and develop effective conservation plans that meet the needs of both people and the environment, at scale.

Our impact report is here!

Our journey over the past few years has been nothing less than transformational. We have refined our ideas, expanded our team, and created a portfolio of projects across the continent. Most importantly, we have developed deeper and more meaningful collaborative partnerships with communities, government authorities, and donors. This has allowed us to learn from feedback, enhance our impact, and achieve more significant results.

We believe that conservation is not just about protecting wildlife, but also about uplifting and empowering communities. We are excited about the progress we have made and look forward to continuing our efforts in 2023 and beyond.

Thank you to all our supporters, partners, and allies who have helped us achieve these milestones. Together, we can make a real difference!

On this World Earth Day, let us come together to recognize the importance of collective action in creating a sustainable future for generations to come.

We all have a role to play in protecting our planet, whether it's reducing our carbon footprint, supporting environmentally-friendly businesses, or advocating for policies that prioritize sustainability.

However, individual action is not enough. We need to work together as a community, across borders and industries, to make a real impact. We need to hold our governments and corporations accountable for their impact on the environment and demand action toward a greener future.

Let us take this day as a call-to-action to work together, collaborate and build partnerships to create a better world. It's time for collective action, and we all have a part to play.

Join us in taking action today and every day to protect our planet and ensure a brighter future for generations to come. #WorldEarthDay #Sustainability #CollectiveAction #ProtectOurPlanet

Happy International Women's Day!

Today, we celebrate the incredible achievements of women around the world, including those who have dedicated their lives to conservation efforts. At Conserve Global, we are fortunate to work alongside some truly remarkable women who are making a real difference in protecting Africa's natural heritage.

From rangers on the front lines of anti-poaching efforts to researchers studying the impact of climate change on African ecosystems, to community leaders inspiring other local women to take charge of conservation efforts in their own communities, women are playing a vital role in ensuring that Africa's wildlife and natural landscapes are protected for generations to come.

This Women's Day, we want to say thank you to all the amazing women who are making a difference in conservation, both in Africa and around the world. Your contributions are invaluable, and we are honoured to stand alongside you in this important work. Together, we can create a brighter future for our planet and all its inhabitants.

Protecting the Faro-Bénoué-Bouba Ndjida ecosystem, in Northern Cameroon, is crucial for both local communities and the planet. Competition for resources and the effects of climate change pose serious threats to the area's biodiversity and human security. The CaSeVe project aims to tackle these challenges by strengthening local institutions, providing data-driven management solutions, and fostering collaboration among stakeholders. The survival of the Giant Eland is a key indicator of the ecosystem's health and success. Investing in thriving landscapes means investing in thriving societies.

These images are from the dry season, so just imagine what the water levels are now that the wet season has begun. It becomes increasingly more difficult to access all areas within the landscape but healthy partnerships and the strong foundation laid over the last 9 month will stand the project in good stead for the weeks when it is harder to get around. #conserve #wilderness #wetlands #zambia #conservation #community 📸 @shemimages ...

We are connected. Connected by our need for water, air and food and the ecosystems that provide them. Connected across generations and through stories of what has been and what can still be. Conserve is inspired by the resiliency of the families like Benson’s (seen in this film) who are making their homes and livelihoods within the natural cycles of the wetlands and woodlands. They need thriving landscapes to support thriving societies. Your contribution to Conserve helps bring this to life for people in remote areas whose livelihoods depend on intact natural landscapes. #givingtuesday #africa #community #conservation #generation #naturebasedsolutions #coexistence #wild 🎥 @jiggyboyfilms @beezieburden @stephslukabrauer @megan.emmett.988 ...

In a position paper prepared for UNFCCC COP27, @iucn_congress promotes nature-based solutions as a front runner in the campaign to fight climate change. It states that “Nature-based Solutions – centered on the conservation, restoration and management of the world’s ecosystems – can make a critical contribution towards both climate change adaptation and mitigation while also supporting biodiversity conservation, health, poverty eradication, food and water security…”. Conserve Global fully supports this position and works to advance the state of protected areas contributing to Nature-Based solutions in Africa. #cop27 #africa #naturebasedsolutions #environment ...

We have great news 📣
Conserve has signed as a committed partner to Orupupa Community Conservancy in Namibia. We are so grateful to the community and the IRDNC (Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation) for trusting in us and cannot wait to get started. #conserve #nature #community #partnerships #namibia #naturebasedsolutions
