Leadership for Conservation in Africa NPC

The Leadership for Conservation in Africa (LCA) was initiated in August 2006 by the South African National Parks (SANParks), Gold Fields Limited and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). It has since been actively involved in 16 African countries.

Special efforts are therefore made by the National LCA Chapters to involve the local communities, but also to influence socio-economic development within the buffer-zones of these parks – and to find ways to enhance the livelihood strategies of these communities.

Through the Edu-Conservation project we are also working to establish a formal educational curriculum that aims to equip the younger generation to better influence the actions of society, businesses and government to benefit conservation.
