About WWF

Welcome to WWF!

WWF was established in 1961, and operates in more than 100 countries. WWF currently funds more than 1,000 conservation projects globally and employs more than 8,000 people across the planet.

The organization is almost unique in that it has a presence from the local to the global level talking to local people in the central African rainforests, through to face-to-face discussions with institutions such as the World Bank and the European Commission.

At every stage, when WWF works with local people, we work with partners and donors. Nothing, absolutely nothing, would have been possible or remain possible without them.

Mission Statement

WWF’s mission statement is: to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by:

  • conserving the world’s biological diversity
  • ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable
  • promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption

WWF’s Guiding Principles

To guide WWF in its task of achieving the mission, the following principles have been adopted. WWF will:

  • be global, independent, multicultural and non party political
  • use the best available scientific information to address issues and critically evaluate all its endeavours
  • seek dialogue and avoid unnecessary confrontation
  • build concrete conservation solutions through a combination of field based projects, policy initiatives, capacity building and education work
  • involve local communities and indigenous peoples in the planning and execution of its field programmes, respecting their cultural as well as economic needs
  • strive to build partnerships with other organizations, governments, business and local communities to enhance WWF’s effectiveness
  • run its operations in a cost effective manner and apply donors’ funds according to the highest standards of accountability.

Fresh water and ecosystems
