At Fauna & Flora International (FFI) we believe that the only way to effectively protect our natural world in the long term is by working with others, and particularly with those who live and work closest to the threatened species and ecosystems we are striving to protect.
This is because local people and organisations have the best understanding of the threats to the wildlife on their doorstep and the complex social and economic processes underpinning those threats. They are also the ones who can effect the most meaningful change in the long term.
Partnership is therefore at the very heart of our organisation and is central to everything we do. We work collaboratively with a huge range of people and groups – from communities, governments, NGOs and businesses based locally, to international organisations, corporations and multilateral bodies.
The way in which we engage with each individual group or organisation is tailored to the circumstances under which they are operating. We choose our partners carefully, but they are the ones who define the parameters of the relationship. In this way, we can be sure that we can give them the support that they want and need.
