Communities for Nature has helped arrange a new partnership between LMAX Group, the global financial technology company and the leading independent operator of multiple institutional execution venues for FX and crypto currency trading, and the Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation Inc. (PRRCFI).
This one year ‘Actions for Communities and Environment’ partnership between the UK-based financial tech company and Filipino Foundation was announced earlier this year, just as PRRCFI was celebrating 28 years of its conservation work. In a fitting recognition of this legacy, the new partnership with LMAX will allow PRRCFI to both continue and strengthen its leading conservation and educational work and realise its vision of wildlife and people in harmony for a sustainable future.
Funding from the new joint initiative will be channelled into education on sustainable development and providing local communities with the tools for ecotourism. This will include sustainability scholarships, conservation research, and capacity-building sessions and equipment support for ecotourism.
PRRCFI works with local communities in the marine protected area of Danjugan Island, Brgy. Bulata, Cauayan, and Negros Occidental, in the Philippines on a whole range of biodiversity conservation, education and sustainable development initiatives.
