About the WWF
Since 1961 the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has been giving a voice to the wildlife kingdom. Its goal is summed up best as “people living in harmony with nature”, and it’s a phrase that underwrites every action and strategy that the organisation adopts.
WWF’s conservation work has never been more import with a growing human population requiring ever greater volumes of fuel, food and water. The effect this has on the environment and habitats that support the world’s wildlife is one of the key issues WWF aims to tackle.
Providing support to the WWF in the form of animal adoption is a valuable way for you to add your voice and support to the development of conservation and environmental policies.
Your donations help WWF continue to exert pressure on governments and organisations. This will ensure that tomorrow’s natural kingdom can remain healthy and be experienced first-hand, rather than in the pages of a book.
Why supporting WWF makes sense
- WWF is a science-led organization which means that the work it produces is credible and read by key-decision makers. Your donation is going to the right organisation with experts in the field.
- WWF extends its reach to a global network of over 100 countries. This makes it uniquely placed to bring together disparate environmental issues concisely, and through this documentation achieve greater respect and acknowledgement from decision makers. People listen to what WWF has to say.
- WWF counts in excess of five million supporter’s world-wide. You join a global movement.
- WWF needs your support as 90% of their income drawn from charitable donations.Without your help there is no WWF.
