The African Wildlife Foundation, together with the people of Africa, works to ensure the wildlife and wild lands of Africa will endure forever. As tens of thousands of African elephants and a record number of Africa’s rhinos are killed by poachers each year, AWF established a $10 million Urgent Response Fund to stop the killing of Africa’s wildlife, stop the trafficking of wildlife parts abroad, and stop the demand for ivory and rhino horn products in Asia. Critical to protecting Africa’s wildlife are the local people and AWF works directly with communities to create a positive impact for all.

Africa Adventure Consultants’ primary focus to help save the planet is to reduce carbon emissions. Our US office is now 100% carbon neutral. Read more on our Travel Green Program.
Carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels are causing the Earth’s climate to change and warm, which will have catastrophic results if we do not act to reduce them. But without travel, we’d miss out on opportunities to see new places, meet new people—to think and live globally. In Africa, wildlife reserves would not have the income to continue protecting wildlife, the millions of people employed in the tourism industry would be unemployed and the critical sharing of cultures would not take place. We believe travel is imperative to fostering a peaceful world.
