The Program Officer for Conservation Partnerships of UK Charity, Fauna & Flora International is in Cameroon for a 10-day official visit to evaluate the project on the Conservation of Threatened Trees at the Mt Cameroon area. The Conservation of Threatened Trees is a project of the Environment and Rural Development Foundation, supported by FFI. The project seeks to conserve some globally threatened tree species on the Mt Cameroon area. The program anticipates to plant 30.000 globally threatened tree species this year on the foot of the Mountain. Mr. David Gill would be in Cameroon to monitor projects on the ground and to plan for the next phase of the project.

Its mission is building a sustainable future for the planet, where biodiversity is effectively conserved by the people who live closest to it, supported by the global community. FFI equally has as mission to act to conserve threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take into account human needs. It work spans across the globe, with over 140 projects in over 40 countries, mostly in the developing world.
