We are the International Anti-Poaching Foundation. Founded in 2009, the IAPF has grown from an industry service provider, to a leader in on-the-ground solutions for nature conservation. Through two key approaches, the IAPF implements programs in strategically positioned areas which promote increased habitat protection and restoration, contributing to national and ecoregion-scale conservation strategies, and the empowerment of indigenous peoples to protect their sovereign lands.
1: The operational model is Akashinga, a community-driven conservation program, empowering disadvantaged women to restore and manage networks of wilderness areas in Africa.
2: Training is conducted under the LEAD Ranger initiative, a program of excellence, building field based indigenous leadership and instructional capacity across the global conservation industry.
