Freshwater at WWF
More than ever, we need healthy freshwater environments. WWF is striving to protect and revive the rivers and wetlands that sustain people and nature. From the Amazon to the Zambezi, we are working with communities, partners, companies and governments to safeguard iconic species like sturgeon and river dolphins, restore wetlands and keep rivers free flowing, increase protected areas, and build resilience to climate change.
Ultimately, though, what’s needed is a transformation in the way rivers are valued - so that the diverse benefits they provide to people and nature are no longer overlooked and undervalued but taken into account by decision-makers.
