Opportunities are limited, but the possibilities are endless.
For much of Africa, the opportunities to achieve prosperity—such as access to quality education and to well-paying jobs with advancement potential—are still hard to come by. But, what Africa lacks in opportunities, it makes up for with its rich natural resources, incredible biodiversity, and hard-working people.
The greatest challenge is making the world, including all of Africa, recognize the vast economic opportunities that the continent has to offer if we leverage conservation. Whether it is conservation lodges that attract tourists, high-quality coffee farms in Kenya whose products could link to the world market, sustainably produced Hass avocados to meet the year-round global demand, or sustainably managed livestock operations that can link Africans to neighboring communities, Africa is rich in possibilities.
