Who we are

Saving nature, together

Fauna & Flora is an international wildlife conservation charity. We work closely with conservation partners in 48 countries to save nature, together.

Our focus is on protecting and restoring habitats, saving species from extinction and developing sustainable livelihoods for those living closest to nature.

Our people are based around the world; supporting projects on the ground in-country and providing technical and operational expertise from our UK head office, and from regional offices across the globe.

We’ve been using the collective knowledge and experience of our people and our partners to protect biodiversity in all corners of the planet for more than 120 years.

Today, we apply our expertise across a range of issues affecting nature. Whether that’s habitat destruction, illegal wildlife trade or unsustainable resource use. Climate change or plastic pollution. Corporate sustainability or global policy.

Watch how Fauna & Flora and our partners are working together to change the story for nature.

How we work

Fauna & Flora strongly believes – and our experience shows us – that those living closest to nature have the best knowledge and experience of their local environment and should therefore be at the heart of all conservation strategies and actions. This belief is reflected in our partnership-led conservation model.

We use our international experience, networks and resources to help establish and drive strategies to save nature, but these strategies can only be effective in the long term if they are delivered in close collaboration with local people and organisations.

Our impact

What is a partnership-led model?

We support and work alongside grassroots organisations, governments, communities and corporations all over the world, combining local and global knowledge, to find the best approach to local conservation issues.

Our partnership-led approach takes many different forms; flexing to the needs of individual governments, organisations, communities and species. For some projects, our own staff work hands-on, side-by-side with our partners every day. For others, we provide ongoing capacity development and support from afar – whether through funding, technical expertise or help with operations.

Our end goal is for partners to be entirely self-sufficient in tackling the threats to nature that they face locally – but we know our support is crucial and we are committed to doing whatever we can, for as long as is needed, to make this a reality.

Fauna & Flora has always been a big brother for AKD. Whenever we need any kind of support Fauna & Flora is there. Our capacity building and institutional development strategies were shaped by the leadership of the charity’s team, and we have worked with them to expand and upscale our projects since the very beginning. Today, we still work very closely on several issues, new projects and opportunities.

Why support us

Fauna & Flora’s work to save nature is desperately needed; for the survival of species and habitats, for a healthy climate, and for people’s livelihoods. Whether for food or clothing, resources or housing, or the very air that we breathe, we are all dependent on nature.

With over a century of experience, we know which conservation methods work and which do not. And we’ve developed policies and procedures, and undertake ongoing due diligence, to ensure our projects are delivered in the most effective, efficient and responsible way.

Guiding all our decision-making and expenditures is our council of trustees – a highly experienced board of external experts. Up-to-date financial information can be found in our most recent Annual Report, along with further details of how we are governed and how our council members are selected.

Thanks to our strong governance and reporting, all our supporters – whether they have given £10 or £10,000 – can be confident that their donations are being spent in the best way possible.
