Falkland Islands (Malvinas)
In partnership with government, industry and the global community, Falklands Conservation will engage and empower the people of the Falkland Islands to take action with us to conserve biodiversity and manage landscapes and seascapes for the benefit of nature and people.
“In the Falkland islands we are fortunate to have fabulous nature, which we rely on very directly for all our livelihoods and for our wellbeing. It is fantastic to be able to work closely with the local community, including the inspirational young people of our youth membership, as we all work together towards our vision of a well-functioning natural environment managed by those living closest to it.”
CEO, Dr Esther Bertram
Of the 13,000 lmportant Bird & Biodiversity Areas (IBAs) identified by BirdLife worldwide, 277 are most severely under threat. Vital sites, such as Cambodia’s Lomphat Wildlife Sanctuary, are home to globally threatened birds such as Giant Ibis and other IBA ‘trigger species’. They face the most intense pressures and need our urgent help.
It’s no joke! Penguins are a highly threatened group of birds. On World Penguin Day, we’re celebrating the incredible (and shocking) feats of the world’s best avian swimmers, sharing the work of BirdLife Partners working to protect penguins around the world, and giving you a chance to walk among a penguin colony.
