LCA positively influence, accelerate and bring about the protection of biodiversity, focussing on rainforests and selected ecosystems in sub-Saharan Africa.

Leadership for Conservation in Africa

The Leadership for Conservation in Africa (LCA) uses a business approach to initiate conservation-led socio-economic development in Africa. Our vision is to positively influence, accelerate and bring about the protection of rainforests and selected ecosystems in Sub-Saharan Africa

We focus on four key impact areas:

Protection of Nature through Private Initiatives

In line with the LCA Vision, we work in close collaboration with governments and various conservation organisations to influence, accelerate and bring about the protection and development of selected parks and reserves in Africa. Conservation commerce is a particular niche-area of the LCA

Rejuvenating through ShareScreen Africa

ShareScreen Africa is a digital initiative launched in August 2021 by the LCA. Academics, researchers, conservation specialists and practitioners, from all over the world, are requested to freely “donate their time” to share their knowledge with others within the African context.

Enriching Country Curricula through EduConservation

In collaboration with the Sabine Plattner African Charities (SPAC), we are piloting curricula-enrichment programs in six Africa countries. By seeking a natural fit within the existing curriculum, Afro-centric nature conservation content is developed, evaluated, tested and re-tested within the local schools, in collaboration with the Department of Education.

Expanding conservation cognizance with Conservation for Non-Conservation Students

If we wish to safeguard our planet we have to change the way we see our own roles in the conservation space. That is why we created Conservation for Non-Conservation students, where we explore the integration of conservation themes into non-conservation studies.  These studies are aimed at sensitising students to their role in conservation, enabling everyone to become custodians of the planet.
