PRLog - Nov. 12, 2010 - CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- The British actress Dame Judi Dench was yesterday elected as a Vice President of UK conservation organization Fauna & Flora International (FFI).  

Dame Judi is considered one of the best actresses of the post-war period for her roles both in theatre and on screen. Over the past several years, she has increasingly lent her voice to environmental campaigns, including encouraging recycling of Christmas cards and creation of an international environmental court.

The role of Vice President is honorary in nature and runs in renewable terms of five years. Vice Presidents are chosen from among people of distinction in conservation or public life more generally and who wish to assist FFI in achieving its conservation goals. Other Vice Presidents of FFI include Sir David Attenborough, Stephen Fry, Dr Charlotte Uhlenbroek, and The Lord Browne of Madingley.

Dame Judi was elected to the post at FFI’s 2010 Annual General Meeting held at London’s Commonwealth Club on 11 November. Two other Vice Presidents were elected at the same meeting: Baroness Valerie Amos, Head of the United Nations Office of Humanitarian Affairs, and Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, Board Member of the International Institute of Sustainable Development.

“I am so pleased to join Stephen Fry and Sir David Attenborough as a Vice President of Fauna & Flora International,” said Dame Judi. “I look forward to supporting their important conservation work in 40 countries around the world. The natural world is being put under increasing pressure and we all need to do what we can to protect it.”



CEO of FFI, Mark Rose added: “We are proud to have Dame Judi Dench as Vice President. The respect she demands around the world and her passion for the environment will help FFI raise awareness of the need to conserve biodiversity.”
