Discover the fascinating story behind Fauna & Flora International in this new book

With Honourable Intent is the story of an organisation that has been shaping and influencing conservation practice since its foundation in 1903. Fauna & Flora International (FFI) was the world’s first international wildlife conservation organisation. The pioneering work of the society’s founders led to the creation of numerous protected areas, including Kruger and Serengeti National Parks. FFI played an instrumental role in creating much of today’s global infrastructure, including the establishment of well-known institutions such as IUCN, WWF and TRAFFIC.

The book reveals how FFI has repeatedly broken new ground with its innovative, landmark programmes: the dramatic eleventh-hour rescue of the Arabian oryx; the Mountain Gorilla Project that brought a species back from the brink; the first programme to put biodiversity firmly on the agenda of blue-chip companies; and the ambitious marine programme that played a vital role in the UK microbead ban. This definitive history of FFI is essential reading for anyone looking to understand how the global conservation effort has developed from the perspective of one of its key players.
