Conserving Biodiversity,
Community & Culture


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 an East African hub that advances collaborative conservation to sustain biodiversity, culture, and community.


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.

Learning Hubs & Networks

We've played a key role in establishing several impactful grassroots organizations and resource centres in Kenya, as well as the Ecotourism Society of Kenya (ESOK), now known as Ecotourism Kenya. We've also been involved in creating land-use plans and management bodies for some of Kenya's first conservancies in Kenya.

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.
