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.
The International Gorilla Conservation Programme (IGCP) has just learned that one mother and three infant mountain gorillas have died in Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda, home to an estimated 380 of the highly endangered great apes.
The deaths were discovered over a couple of days and coincided with heavy rains that have dramatically cooled temperatures and occasionally disrupted gorilla monitoring activities .For a full report visit the IGCP website
