The world’s leading conservation organization, World Wildlife Fund works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. The organization was founded in 1961 as an international fundraising organization to work in collaboration with existing conservation groups and bring substantial financial support to the conservation movement on a worldwide scale.
Today, in partnership with foundations, governments, businesses, communities, individuals and its more than six million members, World Wildlife Fund works to conserve many of the world’s most ecologically important regions. The organization combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.
Our work with the World Wildlife Fund ranges from the conservation of wild salmon and wild salmon habitat in Kamchatka, Russia, to funding for the National System for Natural Protected Areas of Peru in the Andes-Amazon region.
