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.”

Andean Condors are becoming increasingly scarce because of habitat loss, poisoning and persecution. They’re now considered Vulnerable as of the latest Red List update, leading us to ask: has the vulture poisoning crisis spread to the Americas?
One of the planet’s most beleaguered avian groups, the neotropical parrots, took another hit in the 2020 Red List, with a further four species moved to a higher threat category. However, success stories from our American Partners show that hope remains.
