We respond to the global crisis of biodiversity loss by carrying out community-based conservation projects, through:
Research and conservation: The world’s most wildlife-rich sites are still being destroyed or degraded at a frightening rate. We have established an African Forest Programme to conserve 50,000 hectares of threatened forests across Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda and Kenya, and a Marine Conservation Programme to protect oceans and support the people who depend on them.
Resourcing the global church: We want to embed creation care within the DNA of both local churches and global movements, so we are identifying and training key speakers, creating and curating online resources, engaging influential theological institutions, disseminating church engagement programmes (such as Eco Church and Eglise Verte) and multiplying A Rocha’s reach through partnerships with global networks.
Environmental education: Each year A Rocha involves thousands of people, of all ages and many faiths, in activities which introduce them to local and global issues.
