About Fauna & Flora International
Fauna & Flora International (FFI) saves species from extinction and habitats from destruction, whilst improving the livelihoods of local people. Our guiding principles are to work through local partnerships, act as a catalyst for change, make conservation relevant and base decisions on sound science. Founded in 1903, FFI is the world’s longest established international conservation body; our conservation work, and impact, spans the globe.

1. Raja Ampat Marine Project
FFI’s marine work in Raja Ampat started in 2016 as part of FFI’s wider Ridge to Reef Program in the Raja Ampat archipelago. Our marine work focusses primarily on community-based marine conservation on the northern coast of Misool Island, seeking to conserve globally threatened marine species including dugongs and sea turtles. This work is done in close collaboration with indigenous communities, who we are supporting to gain legal recognition of their fishing rights and engage with eco-tourism livelihood opportunities. The wider Ridge-to-Reef approach in the Raja Ampat archipelago aims to reduce land-based impacts on marine ecosystems through community-based forest conservation, collaborative protected area management, community-based sustainable tourism development, and ‘green’ spatial planning interventions.
