Protected Area Programme 

The conservation projects pioneered, supported, or managed by Wilderness Foundation Africa focus strongly on protected areas. Protected areas play a critical role in supporting biodiversity conservation, and are an essential element in a comprehensive plan for reducing poverty and supporting economic development. Wilderness Foundation Africa continues to actively expand its existing conservation networks, ensuring that protected areas and reserves are well managed, and provide benefits for their surrounding communities.

The conservation projects focus on the following key areas:

  • Establishment, development and management of new reserves
  • Conservation Corridors: Concept development and implementation
  • Management support to private and public reserves and national parks
  • Ecosystem Restoration
  • Urban conservation initiatives
