GreatAfrica is a catalyst.

Climate change and biodiversity collapse are the most existential threats of our time. GreatAfrica was established to bring to life at-scale re-wilding initiatives by providing science driven solutions to environmental and social problems. We are converting intent into action in a world that can ill afford to wait.

Our mission is to restore and protect, in perpetuity, interconnected and biologically functional landscapes. And in doing so, mitigating climate change and preventing biodiversity collapse.

Our “beyond conservation” approach allows us to leverage nature-based solutions that are aimed at securing and restoring space for biodiversity and endangered species to thrive.

Built on a lifetime of experience, our values lie in an unrivalled work ethic, professionalism and a deep commitment toward making our world a better place.
