Our People

Join the Herd

Founded in 2005, our teams have grown to 200+ people who implement an ambitious, community-driven, and effective approach to conservation across multiple landscapes in Tanzania.

The organization’s regional headquarters, the Noloholo Environmental Center, was built on land donated by a local Maasai community near Tarangire National Park. It serves as a program hub and education center for African People & Wildlife and our sister organization, Tanzania People & Wildlife.
