Fauna & Flora International (FFI) vice-president Stephen Fry launched the Australian Conservation Circle at an event in Melbourne recently.
The Australian Conservation Circle is an exclusive group of forward-thinking philanthropists, scientists and business executives who are concerned about conservation and have the power to make a big difference, helping FFI Australia conserve endangered species, protect threatened habitats and address global environmental issues.
Stephen Fry, avid conservationist and passionate FFI Vice President and ambassador, recently hosted two events in Australia. He thanked all those who have supported us so far but expressed the urgency and need of further support.
"Of all the conservation organisations in the ether I felt that FFI's was the approach I liked the best. I ultimately opted to involve myself with the organisation that most successfully marries conservation with the needs of the people living in the midst of threatened biodiversity"
The Ancestors of Indigenous Australians have been living in the Great Sandy area for more than 5,000 years. Their long history with the land has enabled them to build up an impressive depth of knowledge on how to live sustainably from land and sea resources.
FFI and partner BMRG organised a workshop where younger people where inspired through filming their Elders speaking about Traditional Knowledge of natural resource management. Read more about our work in Australia.
