World Wildlife Fund (WWF) ranks as the foremost conservation organization operating across the globe today. Boasting approximately 1.2 million constituents in the US alone, WWF now commands around 5 million international members. The powerful worldwide network provides a diversity of ongoing activities and programs dedicated to preserving the earth’s natural resources. Confronting an array of environmental concerns at both global and local levels, World Wildlife Fund strives to conserve diverse ecological systems, guard natural habitats, protect endangered plant and animal species, advocate for the development and implementation of renewable and sustainable energy sources, and reduce worldwide pollution.

To work toward this multifaceted ecological objective, WWF also confronts significant human challenges that include poverty, growing consumption levels, and population expansion. Presently directing initiatives in approximately 100 countries, World Wildlife Fund maintains its international headquarters in Washington, D.C. In addition to engaging in direct action, WWF offers scholarship programs, supports scientific research, provides an array of educational resources, and builds highly effective relationships with governments and other powerful global institutions. Though issues commanding World Wildlife Fund’s attention remain manifold, the organization has nonetheless singled out 19 priority locations carrying special ecological significance. These include international fishing grounds, coral reefs, deserts, freshwater systems, and tropical rainforests.

This WWF prioritization derives from the particular degree of variety and abundance of life sustained in these areas, as well as the imminent threats they face. Priority locations include the Amazon Rainforest, the Congo Basin, the Caribbean Sea’s Mesoamerican Reef, the Galápagos Islands, Coastal East Africa, and the Eastern Himalayas.

Founded in 1961, World Wildlife Fund continues to protect our natural resources through an array of highly effective international activities. For more information regarding World Wildlife Fund, please visit worldwildlife.org.

World Wildlife Fund (WWF)

I am a proud supporter of the World Wildlife Fund, an organization that has advocated for the protection of the environment since 1961. The World Wildlife Fund was established by a small group of European naturalists, scientists, and business and political leaders to meet the growing need of conservation efforts. Responding to requests by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) and The Conservation Foundation, the WWF was founded at the IUCN’s headquarters located in Morges, Switzerland. The three main tenants of the WWF’s mission are: to protect natural areas and wildlife populations around the world, to promote and encourage more sustainable modes of life among human populations, and to encourage efficiency in the use of resources and energy in order to reduce pollution. Since its inception nearly a half a century ago, the WWF has undergone considerable changes. The evolution of the organization has produced an improved international network, and the WWF in the United States plays a pivotal role in the WWF Global Network. One of the many laudable qualities of the WWF is its commitment to accomplishing concrete goals. Currently, the WWF aspires to conserve 19 of the planet’s most important natural places by 2020. These 19 important places include the Amazon, the Amur-Heilong, the Arctic, Chihuahuan Desert, Coastal East Africa, the Congo Basin, the Coral Triangle, the Eastern Himalayas, the Galapagos, the Gulf of California, Madagascar, the Mekong Delta, Mesoamerican Reef, Namibia, the Northern Great Plains, the United States Southeast rivers and streams, Southern Chile, and the Yangtze River. I find it inspiring to support the efforts of the WWF.
