Frontier is a non-profit conservation and development organisation which manages more than 300 projects in 50 countries worldwide. Frontier began in 1989 when, in partnership with the WWF, we set up a protected marine conservation park on an island off the coast of Tanzania. Since then, we have expanded our operations to include a great variety of project types in the areas of conservation, community development, education and healthcare, as well as adventure and gap year travel.
