  • Fly fishing: the hook to conservation in Bhutan

    To minimize the threats, WWF and partners are working to protect the rivers in Bhutan that mahseer rely on to survive and to create a controlled and environmentally sound fly fishing tourism industry there that is centered around mahseer. Doing so will help save this fish and generate revenue for the country’s conservation initiatives.

  • The Urgent Issue of Captive Tigers

    Most people are surprised to learn that there are an estimated 5,000 captive tigers in America’. That’s more than all wild tigers across Asia. Almost 95 percent are privately owned, often by people not trained to care for animals in general, let alone tigers. Alarmingly, there is no accurate record or system to determine the actual number of tigers in the country, where they are, or what happens after they die.

  • The Arctic Council: Building a Region of Peaceful Cooperation

    With on-the-ground teams in all of the Arctic countries, WWF is uniquely positioned to work with all member states, and has engaged with the Arctic Council since before its evolution.
