Whether you have a passion for protecting the Amazon from deforestation or you are committed to fighting the plastic pollution problem, directly supporting a WWF project will allow you to have an impact in a conservation area you care about. Each of our projects contibutes to our global priorities and thus enables you to have a global impact.
Together, we can be champions for coral reefs, rainforests, ice caps or tiger population growth, the choice is yours. To find out more about our priority projects and funding opportunities please contact, Natacha Mirimanoff, Director of Philanthropy or take a look at some of our current Priority Initiatives below (as a dynamic list, the projects are continually being updated to meet the ever changing needs of nature).
Reversing the global loss of nature can’t be delivered by a single organization. When designing our projects, we strive to bring together local communities and multinational corporations, governments and NGOs, finance institutions and development agencies, consumers and researchers to catalyse the change our planet needs. By supporting one of our projects, you are becoming a key stakeholder driving the desire for widespread impact.
Why choose WWF?
- You will be joining a WWF network that has the ability to convene important social, political and corporate leaders to deliver transformational results.
- We have a successful track record - since our formation in 1961, our projects have helped protect more than a billion hectares of lands and sea, brought species like the tiger and mountain gorilla back from the brink of extinction and contributed to some of the most major global agreements for the environment.
CASE STUDY: TIGER HEARTLANDS
Context: Wild tiger numbers have declined rapidly in the last century, from 100’000 to as few as 3’200 in 2010. Protecting the places where tigers live and breed is the backbone of the recovery strategy to double wild tiger numbers by 2022. The most important sites to protect are those that are, or have the potential to become, breeding grounds, allowing tigers to disperse across larger landscapes called ‘heartlands’.
Solution: Secure 50 new tiger heartlands by 2022 by reducing poaching, enhancing community-based conservation principles and best practice, reducing human wildlife conflict, and enhancing the management effectiveness of the sites.
Key Partners: Prince Albert II Foundation, EU, Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, Green Climate Fund amongst others.
