The Tourism Conservation Fund seeks to  protect and promote the biodiversity of South Africa’s conservation areas by investing in adjacent communities to create sustainable businesses and jobs which are rooted in the wildlife-tourism economy.

Through commercial partnerships of different kinds, we aim to build a more inclusive wildlife-tourism economy in which a growing share of the value accrues to historically excluded households and communities.

As the material benefits of our conservation areas become more widely shared, so too will local communities’ identity with and protection of these assets.
