Conserving Biodiversity,
Culture & Community

Our Mission

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. For over 25 years, we've served as a Kenyan Hub, advancing collaborative conservation practices that sustain biodiversity, culture, and community.

Our Work

As a widely recognized leader in community-based conservation, we champion proven approaches based on community interests and capacity, local leadership, and sound ecological science. Our work is focused in these areas:

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 an East African Conservation Hub for cutting edge ecological research and community-based practices, connecting the people and resources needed for long-term solutions.
