World Wildlife is published quarterly by World Wildlife Fund, 1250 24th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20037. Annual membership dues begin at $15. Nonprofit postage paid at Washington, DC and additional mailing offices.

For many of us, each new year marks a chance for renewal, and 2017 is no exception. Every story in this issue speaks to challenge, opportunity, and the transformative power of hope.

Right up front, find out how and why panda numbers are improving, then learn firsthand about the power of bringing together multiple partners and a host of communities to protect Nepal’s wildly diverse wildlife, habitats, and people in a fast-changing world. Find out how businesses and utilities are driving renewable energy forward, or channel the spirit of a woman who ran a half-marathon for WWF because she wanted to put her commitment to nature to the test.

Each of these stories speaks to our faith in the future, and I’m excited to share them with you.

Please keep your eyes on this magazine in the coming year for other signs of resilience and renewal. Because whatever changes 2017 may hold, one thing remains constant: our commitment to this planet we share.

Let's get to work.

Thanks,

Alex MacLennan
