Our Mission

The African Wildlife Foundation is the leading international conservation organization focused solely on Africa. For over 50 years, we have worked to ensure the wildlife and wild lands of Africa will endure forever.


We protect over 80 threatened and endangered species through anti-poaching efforts, the creation of conservancies, research, and community collaboration.


We partner with governments, organizations, and people to protect land, maintain biodiversity, and develop environmentally friendly practices.


Together with the people of Africa, we create positive, environmentally conscious change through community empowerment and economic development.
