The World Wildlife Fund is the leading conservation organization, dedicated to helping in 6 main areas: climate, food, wildlife, fresh water, oceans and forests. And we're proud to announce our new partnership with the WWF.
Let's explore a little bit more about what exactly the World Wildlife Fund does and how you can get involved in making a better planet!
World Wildlife Fund Mission
As stated above, the WWF is dedicated to 6 areas of our planet including forests, oceans, wildlife, food, climate and fresh water. Essential resources for life which demand protection.
A recent change in the mission of the WWF has expanded their vision of conservation to include these many aspects of life on Earth. This is an evolution of philosophy that first started in 1961, when the organization was established to address endangered species and landscapes. Now, a species doesn't need to be endangered for the WWF to be considered with it's conservation.
For over 50 years, the WWF has been at the forefront of protecting life on Earth. With operations in over 100 countries and more than 5 million members globally, the World Wildlife Fund has the ability to influence policies, fund research and more. The WWF is comprised of policy makers, scientists, biologists, activists, volunteers and other people just like you and me that are determined to make our planet healthier.
The WWF is proud to state that 85% of money received in donation to them goes right back into programs they run to help promote the health and conservation of our planet. Compare that to only 4% for administrative costs and you can see that this is a determined group.
