The diversity of life and terrain throughout the continent of Africa is staggering. Between the vast expanse of the Sahara desert and the coastline of South Africa lies the world’s second largest rainforest and the spectacular plains of East Africa, teeming with wildlife. For many parts of the continent the challenge lies in finding ways to help people meet their livelihood needs whilst conserving some of the world’s most iconic species such as gorillas, chimpanzees, rhinoceros and the vast array of ungulates.

We’re not just focused on the mainland of the continent either. We have been working in both Madagascar and the Comoro Islands for many years to conserve the local wildlife – most of which only occurs on those particular islands.

Africa and the nearby islands has been a well-deserved focus for BCSF activities over the last two decades, with most of our projects based here. Check out our project information for the latest update on our work.
