African Union of Conservationists (AUC)

African Union of Conservationists (AUC) has been established to be the biggest Union of Conservationists in Africa, to champion conservation and development integration. It is an independent nongovernmental organization mandated to promote contemporary conservation activities, facilitate joint work with local NGOs, CBOs, CSOs, local authorities, and governments among its members. The Strategy of the Union is to provide essential framework and direction to Africa to arrest the current biodiversity loss. The plan of the Union for the coming period is to:
• Ensure that the Union provides value for biodiversity conservation and also member organizations, states; and governments in Africa
• Demonstrate that the Union is having an impact in its activities

Projects

AUC works with The Environmental Watch of Albertine Rift, an NGO whose headquarters are located in Hoima and whose activities are stretched in the whole Rift but currently concentrated in Hoima and Masindi Districts, on Biodiversity provisions and dependency by communities in the area.
