Who we are

International Trustees and International Team

The International Trustees are responsible for guarding the vision and integrity of A Rocha world-wide. They direct the International Team which supports all the national teams, co-ordinating their activities, providing resources for their use and fostering the emergence of new initiatives.

International Council of Reference

The International Council of Reference is a group of eminent professionals who support and promote A Rocha in their life and work. 

National Committees and National Teams

Each National Team is guided by a National Committee that brings a wide range of expertise to the developing projects. Each team works on community-based conservation projects, sometimes from field study centres which have been established in Canada, the Czech Republic, France, India, Kenya, Portugal, Uganda and the UK.


All the A Rocha teams are dependent on the support of A Rocha members and friends from around the world. Supporters contribute in so many ways: by serving as volunteers on committees or at our centres, by their prayers and financial help, and by their ideas and encouragement.
