The WWF Network focuses particular attention on a small number of globally important flagship species including the giant panda, tiger, marine turtles, great apes, whales, elephants and rhinos in both Africa and Asia. WWF South Pacific works with two of the flagship species, whales and turtles, which feature prominently in Pacific culture.
Our objectives are working with communities to ensure sustainable traditional harvesting of turtles, reduce commercial harvesting and incidental fatalities of turtles. WWF also promotes the establishment of Whale Sancturies and research into the status of whale populations in the Pacific and the process that threaten them.
