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.
FFI Vice President Sir David Attenborough has another Bafta television award to add to his cabinet. The specialist factual award for the amphibian and reptile-packed ‘Life in Cold Blood’ is the eighth Bafta he’s received – his first was in 1961!
FFI would like to congratulate Sir David on this well deserved award and his many other achievements over the past five decades he’s been in television. His passion for the natural world is contagious and his programmes encourage all of us to value and protect the planet’s wildlife. His work has certainly inspired countless naturalists around the world – not least the staff at FFI!

We are proud to have Sir David as our Vice President. He has been a member of FFI since the early 1950s and as Vice President has played an integral role in the development of the organisation. Sir David continues to actively support us in our efforts to conserve threatened species and habitats around the world.
