BCP’s mission is making conservation

of wildlife habitat valuable to people.

BCP is a leading African conservation company which seeks to sustainably finance wildlife and habitat conservation through the forest carbon markets. We are working with Community and Government partners to help improve the conservation management over 1 million hectares of globally significant wildlife habitats in Zambia, and currently benefiting 225,000 people.
