New ABCG Website

The Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group has moved to its own independently-hosted website:

Comprised of seven U.S.-based international conservation non-governmental organizations with field programs in Africa, ABCG explores emerging and high priority African conservation issues, shares lessons learned and seeks opportunities for collaboration.

While we are sad to lose their active presence on FRAMEweb, their archives will still be accessible on FRAMEweb at this link.
