Description

A sustainable future for the planet, where biodiversity is effectively conserved by the people who live closest to it, supported by the global community.

Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth. That is a familiar definition but what it really means for most of us is the number and variety of species. Fauna & Flora International (FFI) works to protect countless species through our conservation programmes.

We carry out monitoring to find out how the plant or animal is faring and raise awareness in local communities about its importance.

And often most importantly, we secure the species’ habitat, without which it cannot survive.

Our teams don’t just work to protect charismatic species. We have a soft spot for the underdog. For instance, we have long championed the importance of protecting reptiles on Caribbean islands, such as the Antiguan racer snake.

Many of these species were on the brink of extinction due to invasive rats and mongoose, which is why FFI’s efforts to create safe havens were so important.
