WWF

Since its creation as an independent foundation under Swiss law in 1961, WWF has been working with local communities, governments, businesses, and other NGOs to protect the world's species and natural places, pushing for a more sustainable world.  

WWF's mission is: To stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and to build a future in which people live in harmony with nature, by: conserving the world's biological diversity, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption. 

With a presence in over 100 countries across the world and offices in more than 80, WWF's efforts have evolved from localised projects in favour of single species and individual habitats to an ambitious strategy and local to global actions to preserve biodiversity and achieve sustainable development across the planet. Today, it focuses on 6 Global Goals - ForestsOceansWildlifeFoodClimate & Energy, and Freshwater – and 3 key drivers of environmental problems – MarketsFinanceGovernance in order to make a difference at a scale and help redefine humanity’s relationship with the planet.
