WWF (The Worldwide Fund for Nature) is a conservation organization that works to protect our planet’s natural resources and its diverse biodiversity. Our conservation work focuses on 6 major global goals- forests, oceans, wildlife, food, climate and energy and freshwater, in addition to 3 major drivers of environmental degradation- markets, finance and governance.
Part of an international network with presence in over 100 countries across the globe, WWF-India has been working to protect our country’s biodiversity and environment since 1969. Our presence in 75 locations across 20 states in the country involves conservation of key wildlife species and their habitats, management of rivers, wetlands and their ecosystems, climate change adaptation, sustainable livelihood alternatives for local communities, water and carbon footprint reduction in industries, combating illegal wildlife trade and imparting environment education to the student and teacher community.
Our mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and 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
