This chapter identifies the 1960s and 1970s as a period of groundbreaking efforts in environmental protection and awareness, and traces the history of environmental conservation in Africa and the United States during this period. In Africa, the development of important private organizations, such as the African Wildlife Leadership Foundation and others, resulted in improvements in conservation of African wildlife. In the United States, environmental organizations and helpful politicians brought about changes in environmental policy that continue to guide the nation's environmental conservation efforts.
