WWF-Philippines: Our Solutions
From eagles to turtles
In 1991, the WWF Philippine Program was established in Manila to supervise numerous field activities and to work more closely with local partners. 5 years later, KKP was transformed into WWF-Philippines and became the 26th national organization of the WWF network.
Among others, WWF-Philippines supports:
- local efforts in coastal resources management
- community-based ecotourism
- management of protected areas, and
- environmental law enforcement.
