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. Vice Presidents are chosen from among people of distinction in conservation or public life more generally and who wish to assist FFI in achieving its conservation goals. 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”.
“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.”
The Vice Presidents were elected at FFI’s 2010 Annual General Meeting held at London’s Commonwealth Club on 11 November. Find out more about the organization here.
