BirdLife’s work in Africa is aligned to the four pillars of the BirdLife strategy: Species, Sites, Systems, and Society. Within this framework, the BirdLife Africa Partnership focusses on: preventing the extinction of bird species; identifying and safeguarding important sites for birds and other biodiversity and; working with people towards sustainable use of natural resources linking up birds, habitats, nature and people.
Our work in Africa
Our planet is in the midst its sixth mass extinction event, with climate change, habitat destruction and other human activities devastating the diversity of life on the planet. But while the crisis is undeniably urgent, there’s also hope. Humans may create huge challenges – but with enough support, dedication and resources, we can also reverse them.
Supported by the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF), BirdLife and our local partners are guiding local conservation projects in the Mediterranean – working closely with local communities and civil society organisations to protect unique and threatened species and habitats in this fabulously biodiverse and culturally rich region.
