What we do

Nature is essential for the survival of all life on Earth. But it’s diminishing, fast.

Climate change, habitat degradation, unsustainable resource use, poaching. It’s all having a devastating impact on our planet.

Protecting and restoring our natural world is an urgent and enormous task. But it’s not impossible.

Saving nature, together

Fauna & Flora has been using the collective knowledge and experience of our people and our partners to protect nature across the globe for more than 120 years.

Our work spans a range of areas affecting nature and influencing our planet’s future. These issues range from habitat destruction to illegal wildlife trade. Climate change to plastic pollution. Corporate sustainability to global policy.

Worldwide, we are helping to protect and restore over 55 million hectares of crucial habitat, including forests, peatlands, grasslands, seagrass meadows and the ocean. Living in – and relying on – these habitats are millions of plant and animal species. Many are confined to a particular landscape and exist nowhere else in the world.

Redonda Restoration Programme

In 2016 Fauna & Flora and partners began taking steps to restore Redonda’s extraordinary biodiversity.

For people & the planet

But these areas don’t just support biodiversity. They are essential for people and the climate too.

By safeguarding healthy habitats, Fauna & Flora projects are preventing the release of the carbon equivalent of nearly 3.6 gigatonnes of CO₂ into the atmosphere. That’s more than half the annual emissions of the United States.

At the heart of many of our conservation projects are the people who rely most heavily on nature for their livelihoods. Food, water, shelter, income are all daily essentials provided by nature.

We strongly believe – and our experience shows us – that those living closest to our projects have the best knowledge and experience of their local environment. Therefore, essential to our work is collaboration with on-the-ground partners and local communities to find sustainable solutions to conservation issues.

Every year, we work with hundreds of organisations – including NGOs, government and universities – across hundreds of project sites in almost 50 countries, to protect over 100 priority species. Saving nature, supporting people.
