Fauna Forever Mission
The Mission of Fauna Forever
Fauna Forever (FF) is a non-profit organization based out of the jungle city of Puerto Maldonado in the Amazon rainforests of Tambopata in south-eastern Peru. Formed in 1997, the NGO works to promote biodiversity conservation, the sustainable use of tropical forest resources, and the continued flow of vital ecosystem services from Peru’s wild nature for the benefit of all. It leads and supports pure and applied environmental and socio-economic research projects, training workshops, volunteer and intern programs, and forest conservation initiatives. It aims to benefit both State- and private-led protected areas, local communities involved in rational use of natural resources, tour guides, scientists, policy-makers, and the general public at large, by documenting the increased understanding of the changing state of wild nature, the benefits and impacts of human activities, and to help the dissemination of knowledge about the Amazon rainforest ecosystem.
