The Global Trees Campaign is a partnership between Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI).
Over 8,000 tree species, 10% of the world's total, are threatened with extinction. Destruction of woodland and forest and unsustainable felling of valuable timbers are threatening many important species, and alarmingly few of these endangered trees are receiving conservation attention.
The Global Trees Campaign, a joint initiative between Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) in association with other partners around the world, aims to highlight the plight of the world’s threatened tree species and initiate conservation action to save them.
The Global Trees Campaign works to save the world's most threatened tree species and their habitats through provision of information, conservation action and support for sustainable use. The campaign focuses on trees as flagship species for conservation of ecosystems and landscapes, and enables local people to carry out rescue and sustainable use operations.
We work in partnership with a range of organisations, including government agencies, non-government organisations, research institutions and local groups, developing their awareness of the issues and capacity to tackle the threats facing tree species. Wherever possible, we seek to support and enhance local livelihoods through our work, and always ensure that our initiatives do not impact negatively on human needs.
