Making a Significant Impact

African Wildlife Foundation works every day to ensure that Africa’s most threatened wildlife is safe and able to thrive in its natural habitat. In 2015, with your support, we successfully protected 24 wildlife corridors; brought 164 million acres of land under improved conservation management; and protected 36 critical populations of elephants, rhinos, carnivores and great apes through our Urgent Response Fund. Explore our 2015 annual report to learn what else we’re doing to protect Africa’s wildlife and lands. The interactive experience highlights the successes and challenges of the past year—and gives you a glimpse of what’s to come.

AWF CEO Patrick Bergin provides a roadmap for China’s engagement in African conservation.
