Learn more about Fauna & Flora International’s marine conservation work
The oceans have been badly abused over the last centuries and Fauna & Flora International (FFI) has launched a new programme to focus on the protection of key marine sites and to address some of the wider causes of marine declines.
FFI is developing a new and exciting programme for marine conservation. Recognising the multitude of threats facing our oceans, we are significantly stepping up our activity on marine issues.
We are building on our existing marine projects, and with our network of partners around the globe are developing a diverse and innovative suite of projects dealing with some of the most important issues affecting the marine environment.
Our work is designed around a three-fold strategy:
• We will help increase the area of marine habitat under effective protection, towards the global target of 10%, and beyond.
• We will tackle key drivers for damage to marine environment – including financial incentives for overfishing, poor fisheries regulations, lack of marine planning, inappropriate offshore development and loopholes in pollution management.
• We will build the capacity of institutions around the world to improve their own marine conservation efforts – offering support in developing skills and accessing resources.
