Mission & Vision


Established in 2014 as a U.S. 501 (c) (3) public charity, African Conservation Centre US (ACC-US) exists to provide support for the African Conservation Centre (ACC) in Kenya and other community-based wildlife conservation initiatives in Africa.

Founded by Dr. David Western and a committed group of board members, ACC-US raises, administers, and grants funds and resources for ACC and other charitable organizations and programs that link science, conservation and people to sustain biodiversity. We do this by partnering with individual donors, foundations, corporations, and other nonprofit organizations.

ACC-US board members and staff are dedicated to supporting ACC and their programs because for more than 20 years, ACC has pioneered community-based conservation programs that work. As an African hub for cutting-edge conservation practices, ACC brings together the people and resources needed to design and implement sustainable solutions to conservation issues.


ACC US’ vision is to conserve the diversity of life for the well being of all people and the environment. View the video below to learn more about the programs we invest in.
