WWF works to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife, collaborating with partners from local to global levels in nearly 100 countries.
Our work on freshwater ecosystems takes center focus in this, our fourth themed issue of World Wildlife magazine.
Why freshwater? Because it touches everything.
Water is what makes life on Earth possible. It’s where wildlife gathers in the dry season and what nourishes every bit of food we eat. It’s how we clean, where we harness power, and where Asian otters and river dolphins swim. It’s in our bodies—literally inside our hearts.
For this issue, we roamed the world looking for stories about the importance of freshwater, how it’s under siege, and what WWF is doing to keep it flowing. Our stories focus on the Yangtze River in China; an effort to identify, understand, and protect free-flowing rivers globally; river dolphins around the world; jaguars in Mexico; the environmental impact of wine; and a fish that may help save Bhutan’s rivers.
If I were you, I’d start with an inspiring essay by two of the top water experts in the world.
Thanks, as always. Drink it in.
