PAFF Introduction

Goal of the PAFF program

You are free to use the logo
The PAFF award program wants to draw attention to the importance of protecting nature, flora and fauna. In this spirit amateur radio operators set up and operate their radio stations from designated nature parks - generating attention for these nature parks whilst giving the ham radio community an interesting activity to contact. PAFF is a national and non-commercial program run in The Netherlands but with strong ties to Flora and Fauna programs all over the world.

The Flora and Fauna movement within ham radio was started in 2008 by the Russian Robinson Club (RRC) as World Flora and Fauna (WFF) program. In 2012 the program relaunched as WWFF: WorldWide Flora and Fauna.

Please feel free to use the PAFF logo to promote the program on your (e)QSL or web page. Click on the logo above for a larger version (500x570 pixels).
