FMC Corporation continues partnership with NSPCA of South Africa. A partnership initially announced in February of 2022

FMC Corporation (NYSE: FMC), an agricultural sciences company, previously (Feb 2022) announced a three-year partnership with the National Council of Societies for the Prevention of the Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA). FMC will contribute $300,000 over the course of the partnership to support the NSPCA's programs focused on wildlife conservation, animal welfare and education.

The NSPCA, the largest animal welfare organization in the southern hemisphere, operates across South Africa and has been ensuring the protection of animals there since 1955.

"FMC understands the importance of biodiversity and its benefits not just to the agricultural industry, but to the entire planet," said Karen Totland, FMC vice president and chief sustainability officer. "We strive to be a force for good in our communities. The future of agriculture, of our business and of society depend on companies like FMC creating a safe, healthy and inclusive environment in which to live and work. Our new partnership with the NSPCA demonstrates FMC's willingness to embrace that responsibility by supporting their stewardship and education programs in South Africa."

"FMC has relationships with many stakeholders in the conservation world, but we were immediately drawn to the NSPCA because of their unique ability to enforce national animal protection laws," said Susanne Lingard, FMC's vice president of regulatory affairs. "The NSPCA will play a significant role in upholding compliance with the new policies and legislations for the conservation of key wildlife species that are currently being developed by the government of South Africa."

"This kind of support is essential to the success of our daily work," said Douglas Wolhuter, manager, wildlife protection unit at the NSPCA. "There are many challenges facing us, but with FMC's contribution, we'll have access to resources that will provide lasting benefits to our wildlife conservation efforts and education programs."
