World Wildlife Fund (WWF) US


We seek to save a planet, a world of life. Reconciling the needs of human beings and the needs of others that share the Earth, we seek to practice conservation that is humane in the broadest sense. We seek to instil in people everywhere a discriminating, yet unabashed, reverence for nature and to balance that reverence with a profound belief in human possibilities. From the smallest community to the largest multinational organization, we seek to inspire others who can advance the cause of conservation. By 2020, WWF will conserve 15 of the world’s most ecologically important regions by working in partnership with others to: Protect and restore species and their habitats; Strengthen local communities’ ability to conserve the natural resources they depend upon; Mobilize hundreds of millions of people to support conservation.
