85% of WWF's spending is directed to worldwide conservation activities.

A Message from Our CFO

FY17 was an incredible year for conservation, from the November enactment of the Paris Agreement to the June launch of We Are Still In—a WWF-supported coalition of US business, education, and local government leaders committed to supporting the Paris Agreement through their work. WWF achieved strong results in our conservation work around the world, and none of it would have happened without the continued support of our donors. Your dedication to WWF inspires us to push even harder. Thank you for making these conservation milestones possible—this year and every year.

Michael Bauer
Chief Financial Officer
