African Conservation Telegraph


The African Conservation Telegraph (ACT) is the newsletter of the Africa Section of the Society for Conservation Biology and your window to the world of conservation in Africa.  
 
With an emphasis on biological conservation, ACT covers environmental news from scientific and nonscientific disciplines for conservation workers, managers, policymakers, academics and students in the field of conservation.
 
ACT is published entirely with love, sweat and goodwill of nerds who think about and do some good for Africa’s biodiversity, regardless of where they may be in this world. First published in 2004, ACT has been refurbished by the Africa Section following a period of dormancy.  
 
"Like" ACT on Facebook and follow the newsletter on Twitter to stay abreast of conservation news in Africa and contribute to the conversation on biodiversity protection in Africa.
