Peace Parks Foundation's response to COVID-19 in southern Africa.

WHAT WE DO

Passionately protecting and restoring critical ecosystems

The Peace Parks dream is to re-establish, renew and preserve large functional ecosystems that transcend man-made boundaries โ€“ thereby protecting and regenerating natural and cultural heritage vital to enabling and sustaining a harmonious future for man and the natural world.

Commitment

We engage with governments to obtain buy-in, secure protected land, and channel investment into development of transboundary conservation areas.

Conservation at Scale

We plan and implement innovative strategies that revitalise habitat integrity, restore ecological functionality, and protect biodiversity.

Commercial Development

We develop nature-based tourism and enterprise opportunities to ensure the long-term sustainability of protected areas.

Community Engagement

We capacitate communities in the sustainable use of natural resources and unlock opportunities for deriving equitable benefits from conservation.

Connected Conservation

A transfrontier conservation area (TFCA) is defined as the area or component of a large ecological region that straddles the boundaries of two or more countries, encompassing one or more protected areas as well as multiple resource use areas. Peace Parks Foundation has been actively involved with the establishment and development of ten of the 18 TFCAs found throughout southern Africa, all of which are in various stages of development.

 

 

The establishment of each TFCA, or peace park, is complex and far-reaching, and involves several phases of activity, which can take many years to achieve. ย It is an exemplary process of partnerships between governments and the private sector – an African success story that will ensure peace, prosperity and stability for generations to come.
