According to the Chinese zodiac February marks the start of the Year of the Snake - and to celebrate we're taking a look back at one of our biggest conservation success stories.
In 1995 the Antiguan Racer was dubbed the "world's rarest snake". Now this Critically Endangered snake is making a steady comeback with Fauna & Flora International's (FFI's) help. A census in 2010 recorded just over 500 racers, a ten-fold increase since conservation efforts began.
Once widespread across the Iberian peninsula, Iberian lynx numbers have fallen dramatically in recent years due to the widespread decline of its preferred prey and habitat. It is now largely restricted to a few mountainous areas, and the race is on to save this Critically Endangered cat from extinction.
Find out how Fauna & Flora International is supporting local partner LPN in its work to restore key habitat and bring this species back from the brink.
Mount Mabu in Mozambique is home to the largest rainforest in southern Africa. Often referred to as ‘the Google forest‘, its discovery is the result of a thoroughly modern approach to exploration. Since it was first explored by scientists in 2005, an array of species have been discovered there, including snakes, chameleons, butterflies, bats and plants.
