Our focus

Saving species

Rapid biodiversity loss is jeopardising the future of our planet. Over one million animal and plant species are threatened with extinction.

FFI has a track record of success in bringing species back from the brink. Throughout our 120-year history, we have made great strides in reversing the decline of biodiversity.

Safeguarding habitats

Habitat loss is having a devastating impact on the world’s biodiversity. Deforestation, drainage of wetlands, agricultural expansion and industrial activities are all responsible for the destruction of ecosystems.

FFI is helping to protect biodiversity-rich habitat at over 300 sites in almost 50 countries, encompassing forests, grasslands and deserts, wetlands and seascapes.

Promoting smarter ways to mine within fragile forests

Combatting climate change

Climate change is one of the biggest threats to biodiversity, and to human health and well-being. Conversely, that same biodiversity is crucial to preventing climate meltdown.

From rainforest protection to mangrove restoration, all our conservation activities are directly or indirectly helping to combat climate change.

Community-led conservation

The protection of nature starts with people - particularly, those living closest to it. We believe that conservation success lies in local hands.

FFI works with over 300 in-country partners worldwide, empowering communities, organisations and individuals to protect the biodiversity on their own doorsteps.
