WWF Partner Symposium

June 6, 2024 | 2:00 pm – 3:45 pm ET | VIRTUAL


You’re invited to WWF’s 2024 virtual Partner Symposium. Join your fellow Partners in Conservation, Legacy Circle members, and other committed WWF supporters to learn how partnerships—with communities, governments, corporations, and you—are advancing innovative efforts to protect and restore bison populations in the Northern Great Plains and eliminate plastic pollution in nature.  

During the Symposium, you’ll get an insider’s look at two groundbreaking priority conservation projects for WWF. You’ll hear from WWF leaders and experts about how we’re partnering with Native Nations in the Northern Great Plains to restore bison to their historic range for the benefit of communities and nature, and how we’re working with businesses and policy makers in the US, riding a groundswell of momentum driven by public sentiment, to advance a global plastics treaty that will revolutionize the way humans use plastics in their everyday lives.  

We hope you’ll join us to gain exclusive insights into how your partnership is helping to ensure a thriving future for nature and humanity. 


To give you an idea of what to expect, here is the current agenda for the Symposium.
Please note that the program and schedule are subject to change. All times listed below are Eastern time.

2:00pmWelcome and Opening Remarks

SESSION I: Community-Centered Conservation in the Northern Great Plains

Millions of plains bison once roamed the grasslands of North America. Then years of Western Expansion and US government policies nearly drove the species to extinction. In response to their tragic decline, conservationists and Indigenous peoples have been working for more than a century to bring the plains bison back from the brink of extinction. Since 2014, WWF has partnered with Native Nations throughout the Northern Great Plains in support of their efforts to conserve and restore grassland ecosystems and bring bison back to their traditional homelands.



SESSION II: Global Treaty to End Plastics in Nature

Plastic waste is choking our planet—polluting the air, water, and soil both people and wildlife need to survive. Five years ago, WWF set an ambitious goal to eliminate plastic from entering ecosystems across the world through our “No Plastic in Nature” campaign. And thanks to the efforts of millions of people like you, and partnerships with corporations and policy makers, we’re on track to meet that goal.
