Fauna & Flora International Australia
Increasing threats to our world and its biodiversity demands an increased level and speed of response. It was with this in mind – and indeed due to Australians’ desire to play a strong part in the global solution – that FFI Australia was established in August 2008.
Whilst great progress has been made so far, we need your support and help if we are going to continue to address the problems we, as a global population, face. If you are interested in getting involved please contact Nick Bubb, at [email protected]

Jonny Wright was appointed to the Board of FFI Australia by FFI’s Council of Trustees in 2020. He joined FFI in 2019 to lead our communications and fundraising teams. His love of wildlife, nurtured during his childhood years in India, ultimately led to his decision to study Biology at Manchester University. After graduating, Jonny worked for Reed Recruitment, where he obtained diplomas from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
Combining his professional skills in communications and marketing with his passion for the natural world, Jonny joined RSPB. He worked for the organisation for 17 years, during which time he managed various functions across membership recruitment and development, brand, communications and marketing. In his various roles at the RSPB, Jonny was instrumental in driving the growth in membership recruitment and increase in individual giving, and he also led the organisation through a significant rebrand.
Nick Bubb is FFI’s Global Development Executive working to promote the organisation, build new partnerships and fundraise for its extensive programme of conservation work.

An engineer by qualification and with a huge passion for the natural world, Nick spent ten years as an ocean racer competing in various round the world and solo trans-Atlantic races, before moving into finance as a private client wealth manager. Although based in London, Nick’s main geographical areas of responsibility include the Caribbean, Singapore & Australia and typically he visits the regions each quarter.
