About the TBA
What we do
The TBA builds the capacity of conservation scientists and institutions in tropical regions to manage and safeguard biodiversity, for the long term. We do this by providing tailor-made training and ongoing follow-up support.
Our teams in Nairobi and Cambridge work in partnership with conservation institutes and member organisations in more than 60 countries. The TBA network includes leading universities, research departments, government agencies and non-governmental organisations.
Our Corporate Partnerships programme is helping companies that are dependent on agricultural production to enable their farmers and their land to be more productive and environmentally sustainable. Working in partnership, we show companies how an integrated approach to land and water management can transform agricultural landscapes and farmers’ practices, benefitting the company, biodiversity and farmer livelihoods.
Established in 1993, the TBA is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee (with no share capital). We have offices in Cambridge (UK) and Nairobi (Kenya).
The TBA is a founder member of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative — a collaboration of leading biodiversity conservation organisations and the University of Cambridge. CCI aims to transform global understanding and secure a sustainable future for all life on Earth.
We are a co-organiser of the Student Conference on Conservation Science — the only annual forum specifically organised for young conservation scientists to deepen their knowledge, share ideas and build networks.
Your impact in Africa especially seems to be truly wonderful. Long may it continue!
