What WWF does
The TransFly Programme is an initiative managed jointly by WWF in PNG and Papua, Indonesia, and is the first example of a cross-border terrestrial ecoregion programme on the island.
Through this effort, we are tackling issues such as poorly planned commercial forestry and plantation crops, non-traditional burning, infrastructure development and over- exploitation of natural resources.
This is part of our plan to fill a major gap in conservation planning. To provide a conservation blueprint based on this crucial ecosystem, rather than on political boundaries, WWF is developing a Biodiversity Vision for the entire TransFly Ecoregion.
