WWF is the world’s leading conservation organisation, active in over 100 countries. Since 1961 we've been working to create solutions to the most serious environmental challenges facing our planet.
WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of our planet's natural environment, and build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.
Best known as the world’s leading independent conservation organisation, we’ve seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked.
That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.
WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities here in the UK and around the world.
WWF-UK aims to:
- Sustainability: if everyone in the world lived like we do in the UK, it would take nearly three planet Earths to support us. We can all learn to use fewer natural resources. It’s vital that we do.
- Conservation: our forests, oceans, rivers and lakes are under severe threat. We are working to halt and reverse dramatic declines in wildlife species and the destruction of the places where they live.
- Climate Change: this represents an increasing threat to so many of the planet’s species – including our own. The science tells us that now is the time to act, before it’s too late.
