Our Work

Community Involvement

hero_post_wave

We work on behalf of our members, and in partnership with the local and international community to conserve the Falklands natural environment by community outreach, practical conservation, research and delivery.

We work within the community to engage and raise awareness of the work that we do. It involves a whole range of elements from community events, volunteering opportunities, collaborations with schools and other groups, and running our youth membership, the Watch Group.

Volunteers

Volunteer activities vary from taking part in community events to feeding oiled penguins in our Oiled Seabird Rehabilitation Centre, to habitat restoration or invasive species eradication. We rely on our dedicated volunteers both in the UK and the Falklands.

Annual Charity Ball

Each year we host the Charity Ball, our main fundraising event in the Islands, which raises significant funds.
We rely on a number of donors and supporters, our main sponsor being Consolidated Fisheries Ltd., who have supported the Ball since 2004.

Education, Outreach and Community Events

We liaise with all aspects of the community, to educate and enthuse about the importance of conservation and the environment. We collaborate with schools to give lessons, assemblies and assist with school trips with an environment or conservation focus.
