Who are we?

Future For Nature (FFN) is a non-profit organisation that supports young, talented and ambitious conservationists committed to protecting species of wild animals and plants. Each year FFN organises the Future For Nature Award Event where three winners are given the prestigious Future For Nature Award and €50,000 to spend where it’s most needed. The FFN team currently consists of two coordinators working at the office. The team is also supported by the board and many volunteers. The office is located in Burgers’ Zoo, Arnhem. This means your work place has a view of the penguins. How great is that!
