Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is pleased to announce that Dame Judi Dench has been elected as its new Vice President.

The role of Vice President is honorary in nature and runs in renewable terms of five years.

The organization’s mission is to “act to conserve threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take into account human needs”.

Other Vice Presidents of FFI include Sir David Attenborough, Stephen Fry, Dr Charlotte Uhlenbroek, and The Lord Browne of Madingley.

“I look forward to supporting FFI’s important conservation work in 40 countries around the world,” said Dame Judi. “The natural world is being put under increasing pressure and we all need to do what we can to protect it.”
