Abstract:The study notes the genesis and development of international cooperation for the conservation of natural resources in Africa. The source material consists of two Conventions for the protection of Africa's wildlife as formulated by the European colonial powers: International Convention concerning the Preservation of wild Animals, Birds and Fish in Africa (London, 1900) and 2. Convention relative to the Preservation of Fauna and Flora in the Natural State (London, 1933), along with the OAU Convention on the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, 1968, all encouraging uniform conservation legislation. The article analyses each convention as well as two examples of resultant legislation (Ordinance no.2 of 1901 of the Gold Coast and the Sudan's Preservation of wild animals Ordinance of 1936). Finally, there is a tabulation of conservation legislation in each African nation.
