Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are living at a turning point for nature as we know it. Accelerating extinctions, dramatic losses in key biomes – particularly tropical forests and coral reefs – the rapid decline in the abundance of wildlife with which we share our planet and the increasing likelihood of dangerous climate change in coming decades are loudly signalling an urgent need for action at all levels. Given this outlook, and the vital role that nature plays in regulating our climate and underpinning our economy, there has never been a greater need for the work that Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and our partner organisations do.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Saving species

Fauna & Flora has a long and distinguished track record in bringing endangered species back from the brink, either by protecting their habitat or though direct interventions such as combating illegal wildlife trade.

Species benefitting from our work in 2022 included widely known species such as green turtles, gorillas, pangolins, and both Asian and African elephants, as well as less familiar species including saiga, the critically endangered asprete, and an array of rare reptiles.

Population(s) Served

Our project locations around the world encompass temperate and tropical forest, grasslands and deserts, limestone caves, agricultural landscapes, wildflower meadows, wetlands, and marine habitats.

Area-based conservation, both terrestrial and marine, has always been a cornerstone of Fauna 7 floras work, helping to secure safe havens for species, maintain ecosystem health and mitigate the effects of climate change. In 2022, we safeguarded key areas of natural habitat both by ensuring more effective management of existing protected areas and by bringing new areas under protection or sustainable management.

Population(s) Served

We believe that local people and organizations, equipped with the requisite skills, tools, and resources, are best placed to conserve the biodiversity on their doorsteps.

In 2022, we supported a range of partners in locally led conservation activities, worked hand in hand with communities to ensure local ownership and nurtured emerging conservation leaders across the globe.

Population(s) Served

Fauna & Flora is playing its part in tackling climate change in two main ways:

1. Preventing emissions by:
• Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+)
• Protecting habitats - preserves carbon stores
• Working with committed partners in the agricultural and extractive sectors to reduce their impact on biodiversity and ecosystem services such as carbon storage.

2. Alleviating the Effects of climate change
• Climate change adaption planning
• Protecting threatened species

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our vision is a sustainable future for the planet, where biodiversity is effectively conserved by the people who live closest to it, supported by the global community.

Our mission is to conserve threatened species and ecosystems worldwide.

To achieve our mission, FFI works with partners to deliver local solutions that are scientifically robust and enhance human well-being. We are part of a global conservation movement, yet we are distinct in the way that we tackle the conservation challenge.

1. Saving nature
2. Partners Thriving
3. Decisions for nature
4. Seeding enhanced conservation

In working to realize Fauna & Flora’s vison of a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved effectively by the people who live closest to it, supported by the global community, Fauna & Flora ensures all of its projects adhere to a set of core principles. They deliver collaborative projects on the ground to benefit both species and the habitats they depend on, and which drive climate benefits. They work with partners ranging from local community organizations and NGO’s to small-scale enterprises, larger businesses, and government agencies to develop locally owned and sustainable conservation programs. They believe this approach is more likely to result in appropriate solutions, elicit local support, and ensure long-term effectiveness.

Fauna & Flora respects and promotes human rights and cultural values, as well as supporting governance systems that benefit both people and biodiversity.
They see conservation as social progress, with people at its heart, and actively engage with the communities who live closest to threatened species and habitats, seeking to enhance human well-being and coexistence with nature. They work more widely to influence decisions for nature – both by governments and business, and will champion emerging issues and challenge threats to the sites where they work.

Fauna & Flora’s conservation practices are evidence informed, taking into account both robust science and traditional knowledge. They aim to ensure that all project decisions are underpinned by the best available information, and to monitor their impact rigorously, sharing what Fauna & Flora and their partners have learned, in order to improve practice and help guide future conservation innovation.

• Fauna & Flora worked with 109 priority species and at least 193 further species benefitted from their work
