MISSION & VISION
African Conservation Centre’s mission is to conserve biodiversity in East Africa and beyond through the collaborative application of scientific and indigenous knowledge, improved livelihoods and good governance through development of local institutions.
Through the years, we have stayed true to the following guiding values:
Innovate: Identify issues and develop innovative solutions to address the conservation challenges.
Collaborate: Blend knowledge (scientific and local) and partner with others to create an information and best practices hub
Respect: Appreciate cultural pluralism while respecting local peoples’ ability to use and manage their own resources to improve their livelihoods.
Equity: Ensure that communities get their rightful share of conservation benefits.
Empower: Build skills, enhancing knowledge and enabling people to manage and govern their own institutions and resources.
