The goal of the Wildlife Without Borders (WWB)-Africa Program is to assist African nations to develop individual and institutional capacity for biodiversity conservation in and around protected areas.
Protected areas play a crucial dual role by providing an important refuge to safeguard key wildlife
populations while also creating an opportunity to earn valuable revenues and improve the livelihoods of neighboring communities.
By raising the capacity for wildlife conservation throughout Africa, the WWB-Africa program meets a growing demand for new approaches to conservation.
Additionally, the program provides support to mitigate the impact of extractive industries, climate change, human-wildlife conflict, illegal trade in bushmeat, and wildlife disease.
Target audiences for training and capacity building support include:
wildlife managers, guards, rangers, protected area managers, outreach specialists, community leaders, educators, and decision maker.
