African Parks is a non-profit conservation organization that takes on direct responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of protected areas in partnership with governments and local communities.
Wildlife across Africa are under siege, whether elephants for their ivory, rhinos for their horns, or bushmeat for local consumption. African elephants number around 350,000 having decreased from 10 million just over a hundred years ago, and fewer than 25,000 rhinos are left on the continent. Wildlife habitats, such as forests, woodlands, savannahs and wetlands are under enormous pressure, due to the increasing demands of an increase in the human population, and are almost entirely restricted to Africas national parks. Africas ecosystems and biomes are under tremendous strain and they urgently need to be conserved before they collapse, and are lost forever.
When you donate to African Parks by purchasing an african wildlife print, your support goes directly to the parks where you are helping bring species back to their former ranges, and helping the team to create safe areas for them to breed, and thrive.
