Friends of Conservation was founded in 1982 to prevent degradation of the Masai Mara. It now runs conservation projects worldwide and is committed to working with local people to promote a balance between their needs and those of the wildlife with which they share their natural habitat.
Friends of Conservation support the Selous Black Rhino Protection Project. The Selous Rhino population has dropped by 98% since the 1970s and is critically endangered in the Selous so this project is vital in ensuring that the few remaining rhino do not disappear.
Explore are patrons of Friends of Conservation; we aim to protect endangered wildlife and their habitats by working closely with local communities, and exploring practical ways in which they can utilise natural resources more sustainably.
