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 pictures below were taken by camera traps in the Veal Veng Marsh in the southwest Cambodia, where we work to save the critically endangered Siamese crocodile, among other rare species.
A healthy young Siamese crocodile – you can see the eye shine, which is how the FFI team surveys crocs at night with a torch.
A large spotted civet, listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.
Very possibly a hairy nose otter, listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List.
An adult Siamese crocodile with a cable coming from its mouth (possibly fishing gear – which poses a serious threat to the species).
