Brief Description: 'FFI's mission is to conserve threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs.' (Source: www.fauna-flora.org; accessed 25 November 2009)

Founding Rationales:

'It has been suggested that a small association should be formed for the purpose of disseminating among its members information which is to be found scattered in a great number of official reports, and in other sources, dealing with game reserves, game laws, the amount of game killed, the gradual disappearance of species, etc., throughout Africa. The great object of the association is to further the formation of game reserves or sanctuaries, the selection of the most suitable places, and the enforcing of suitable game laws and regulations.'
