Projects supported by FFI Australia

Fauna & Flora International Australia is supported by various companies, individuals, partner NGOs and Australian zoos. Some of the projects currently being supported are:

Humane Society International supports the International Gorilla Conservation Programme

Since 1991 Fauna & Flora International (FFI) has been working in partnership with WWF and the three Protected Area Authorities of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Rwanda and Uganda through the International Gorilla Conservation Programme (IGCP) to conserve the Critically Endangered mountain gorilla and its habitat.

Mountain Gorilla

A three year partnership with the Humane Society International (HSI) has assisted IGCP in the smooth execution of its activities, which include improving the livelihoods of rural communities, addressing community issues such as crop raiding management, improving monitoring activities and providing education and training to staff.

With HSI’s support, the programme’s success is evidenced through the rising gorilla population – now numbering over 800. However, threats to the future security of these populations are ever increasing and continued conservation efforts are vital to secure the future of the mountain gorilla and its habitat.

Zoos working towards conservation

Zoos across Australia have offered FFI invaluable support in recent years, and with FFI offices now open in Melbourne and Sydney, our relationships with these organisations are going from strength to strength.

Elephants are undoubtedly at the top of their priority list:

  • Through their Wildlife Warriors Worldwide arm, Australia Zoo is supporting FFI’s Asian elephant programme. More recently the zoo also provided material support to the project teams in the form of vehicles, electric fencing, and GPS, and also set up an exchange programme between the staff of two of our regional elephant programmes.
  • Melbourne Zoo provides ongoing species support for elephants and landscapes in Northern Sumatra, and has provided critical support to FFI’s biological survey teams in Cambodia’s Cardamom Mountains.
  • Taronga Zoo sponsors a community based project to address human-elephant conflict in Cambodia through FFI’s trilateral partnership between the Government, NGOs and local community representatives.

And tigers don’t come far behind…

  • Australia Zoo is also helping to tackle the serious threats to the Sumatran tiger (there only 300-400 individuals left in the world) by supporting the work of the joint FFI and Kerinci Seblat National Park Tiger Protection and Conservation Units. These Units defend a significant population of Sumatran tigers by leading law enforcement patrols in vital tiger habitat, which have so far led to over 20 successful arrests of tiger poachers.
