Our Work

Biodiversity in Kenya and eastern Africa is under threat from unsustainable land-use practices, weakened community land governance, and growing pressures on natural resources. The African Conservation Centre (ACC) is on a mission to change that.

As a widely recognized leader in community-based conservation, we champion [proven] conservation approaches based on community interests and capacity; sound ecological science; and local leadership.

ACC Women's Enterprises

1. Communities & Conservation

We support community conservation that empowers and benefits local communities, building local capacity and creating grassroots models of effective, locally-led conservation.

2. Science & Research

We contribute to the conservation and management of biodiversity and sustainable use of natural resources through exemplary applied research and use of science to inform policy and conservation practice, support evidence-based decision-making and increase awareness amongst stakeholders.

3. Policy & Practice

We influence policy and practice to promote inter-sectoral coordination, sustainable natural resource management, effective implementation and sound governance, including community empowerment and benefits from wildlife and other natural resources.

Our Impact

Formally established in 1995, ACC has a unique track record as a conservation thought-and-practice leader. Today we offer a hub for learning, connecting, and influencing conservation in East Africa and beyond.

As an African hub for cutting edge ecological research and community-based conservation practices, we connect the people and resources needed for long-term solutions. Honed over nearly 30 years, our expertise lies in creating new platforms and initiatives that bring different stakeholders—including civil society, researchers, government policy-makers, and local communities—together around common aims.
