Rebecca has been working at FFI since September 2007. Though she studied conservation in her BA and MSc, she decided that the life in the jungle just wasn't for her. Having grown up in New York City, she has experienced more pigeons and squirrels than parrots and spider monkeys. So she decided to write about the impact that FFI's projects have on the ground.
Her current role as Communications Officer (Business & Biodiversity) has allowed her to focus her energy towards FFI's innovative Business & Biodiversity Programme. Rebecca helps to get the message out about FFI's strategic corporate partnerships and what they have helped to achieve for global biodiversity.
Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is pleased to announce that three new Vice Presidents have been elected.
The role of Vice President is honorary in nature and runs in renewable terms of five years. Vice Presidents are chosen from among people of distinction in conservation or public life more generally and who wish to assist FFI in achieving its conservation goals.
Other Vice Presidents of FFI include Sir David Attenborough, Stephen Fry, Dr Charlotte Uhlenbroek, and The Lord Browne of Madingley.
“I look forward to supporting FFI’s important conservation work in 40 countries around the world. The natural world is being put under increasing pressure and we all need to do what we can to protect it,” said Dame Judi Dench.
The Vice Presidents were elected at FFI’s 2010 Annual General Meeting held at London’s Commonwealth Club on 11 November.
