Africa has the greatest wilderness in the world with vitally important ecosystems, habitats and biodiversity. Yet traditionally, conservation efforts have been led by international organisations with limited involvement of African leadership.
Africa Nature Investors aims to catalyse the participation of Africans in conservation and attract capital and expertise from across the continent into the sector. We aim to make Africa’s nature and wildlife a source of pride to Africans and to demonstrate that appropriate private sector investments can make nature conservation sustainable and profitable in a manner that benefits development locally and regionally.
