With their mission to make conservation of wildlife habitat valuable to people, BioCarbon Partners is the choice of the Pathways Africa team for purchasing offsets. BCP’s carbon offset program goes towards conserving areas of global biodiversity significance, Africa’s remaining strongholds of wildlife and towards providing powerful community impacts. Currently BCP is working to create one of the largest migration corridors in Africa through the protection of habitat, linking 5 National Parks in Zambia, conserving the connectivity of biodiversity for Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
