Welcome to Partners For Conservation

It is my great honour and pleasure to meet and to welcome you all to Partners for Conservation. Thirteen years ago, I began my career in conservation. One of the lessons learned from my experience is that conservation is neither a matter of extraordinary studies, nor an astronomic sum of money, nor a matter of dependency to a particular group or society.

Note from the Founder

It is my great honour and pleasure to meet and to welcome you all to partnerss for Conservation. Thirteen years ago, I began my career in conservation. One of the lessons learned from my experience is that conservation is neither a matter of extraordinary studies, nor an astronomic sum of money, nor a matter of dependency to a particular group or society. Working with poor communities surrounding the Volcanoes National Park, the sole habitat of the endangered mountain gorillas, offered me an opportunity to meet and interact with people of different backgrounds. Interestingly, I noticed that alongside the highly qualified person, a person without formal education or training was needed to check our plans to ensure success! Likewise, the poor person needed support from the richest and highly qualified. It is from this complementary relationship that I realized and concluded that everyone is a born conservator.

Here is another example: a farmer preparing for the coming farming season prepares the soil, designs water- catchments, plants anti-erosive plants, and so on. Once crops are grown, he fences the land. Traditionally, in Rwanda we use specialized indigenous trees like Vernoniaamygdalina (umubirizi), Dracaena afromontana (umuhati), Euphorobiatirucalli (umuyenzi), and Erythrinaabyssinica (umuko)…! You agree with me that our farmer has no intention other than ensuring healthy crops for a better harvest. But, “biodiversity” speaking, our farmer has given an invaluable contribution to the plight of conservation! What would we tell our children and grandchildren without this farmer’s action which unintentionally contributed to preserving these indigenous trees that are today threatened to extinction. This is what Partners for Conservation calls a legacy.
