The Asia-Pacific region harbours incredible biological diversity and unique landscapes, and is home to some of the planet’s most iconic species, such as the orang-utan and Asian elephant. Today the region’s wildlife and wild places face myriad and mounting threats. High human population densities and rapid economic growth combined with low levels of environmental control and widespread rural poverty place enormous pressure on the region’s biodiversity, ecosystems and natural resources.
FFI is working over a range of landscapes from the frozen highlands and deserts of the Tibetan Plateau through the temperate forests of Indochina to the tropical rainforests and reefs of Indonesia to help conserve some of the region’s most important species and habitats.
