Our Work

A Portfolio of Outstanding Conservation Organizations

Solutions to Africa’s conservation challenges exist – but we need to make them even more effective and sustainable and we need to help them grow. We believe effective and long-lasting conservation models focus on three key pillars:

  • Rights: strengthening local rights over land and resources

  • Value: Creating economic incentives for stewardship

  • Governance: Strengthening decision-making bodies and governance institutions

We provide organizational support through a customized, multi-year process that responds to the unique needs of an individual organization, while also following a consistent and systematic service delivery approach. We help our partners develop more focused strategies for achieving impact; communicating clearly and effectively about their work; raising the money they need to succeed; developing their leadership skills and partnerships; and building their management systems. 

We believe that improving strategy, building a strong team, and developing the systems required to take ideas to action are the foundations for accelerating conservation impact.
