Africa

WCS operates the largest and longest standing field conservation program in Africa. Our projects span the natural diversity that is Africa—from the rich tropical forests of Nouabalé Ndoki deep in the Central Congo Basin to the remote and rugged savannahs of Ruaha in southern Tanzania. We work from the vertical slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes in Rwanda to the stunning land and seascapes of Antongil Bay in Madagascar. WCS protects some of the continent's most ecologically intact wild places like Niassa in Mozambique, while conducting groundbreaking research on some of the continent’s most iconic species, including forest elephants and Grauer’s gorillas. WCS is committed to conserving Africa’s wildlife through powerful partnerships designed to benefit people and nature, and has selected the best places to achieve long-term conservation success.
