Welcome to the African Protected areas task force, a task force shared between WikiProject Africa and WikiProject Protected areas! This taskforce involves a group of editors dedicated to improving coverage of articles on national parks and protected areas and reserves within the continent of Africa.

Goals and tasksEdit

  • Create templates for the protected areas of each African country.
  • Create articles for every protected area in Africa.
  • Expand all articles beyond a stub class
  • Build a detailed set of lists with an encyclopedic summary by country which aim to serve as a guide to National Parks and Reserves within them
  • Develop Kruger National Park to FA status and any others.
