Nature Conservation

Nature Conservation

Through residential field study centres and our site-based projects we carry out ecological monitoring and research in areas of high value for wildlife.

Community-based Conservation

A Rocha is active in community-based practical conservation projects around the world. We are focused on resolving issues that threaten ecosystems and the diversity of their flora and fauna. 

Some projects are small-scale and led by volunteers; others are bigger-budget programmes involving whole communities dependent on the health of local forests and wetlands.

Some examples of our work:

Through the A Rocha Marine Programme we

  • study, protect and restore marine habitats and biodiversity, 
  • raise awareness of marine pollution, with tools like our Plastic Toolbox
  • develop resources and build capacity in support of coastal areas 

Through the A Rocha African Forest Programme we campaigning to combat deforestation, particularly in Atewa, Ghana and the Dakatcha Woodlands, Kenya
