Founder & CEO | African Parks

African Parks is a non-profit organisation responsible for the rehabilitation and long-term management of national parks, in partnership with governments and local communities. Their approach combines world-class conservation practice with business expertise, focussing on achieving financial sustainability for national parks by combining donor funding with tourism revenue and related business enterprise, all of which serve as a foundation for economic development and poverty alleviation.

“If the breakdown of governments, law and order is the problem, then we cannot leave them to run our parks.” – Peter Fearnhead
