At OSC, we are proud to support the work of Fauna & Flora International (FFI). Established in 1903, FFI is the world’s oldest conservation charity. Over the last 100 years, they have saved the Arabian oryx (Oryx leucoryx) from extinction, discovered the Myanmar snub-nosed monkey, (Rhinopithecus strykeri) and led successful campaigns resulting in the ban of plastic microbeads in cosmetic products in the UK – to list but a few of their accomplishments.
Today, FFI is tackling over 140 conservation projects across more than 40 countries, covering everything from establishing Cambodia’s first marine protected area to tackling the global illegal wildlife trade.
FFI’s mission to conserve threatened species and ecosystems worldwide is a goal shared by OSC. Their research-led approach and desire to work constructively with both large corporations and local people align with our own values. We find ourselves in good company, as FFI can boast the support of the likes of Sir David Attenborough, Stephen Fry, and HRH the Duke of Cambridge.
