Mission/Mandate

Established in 1961, WWF operates in more than 100 countries working for a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.

WWF's mission statement is:

  • To stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by:
    • conserving the world's biological diversity
    • ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable
    • promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.

The organization is almost unique in that it has that local presence to global presence - talking to tribes of Baka pygmies in the central African rainforests, through to face-to-face discussions with institutions such as the World Bank and the European Commission.

But at every stage WWF works with local people, it works with partners, it works with its donors.
