From rain forests to reefs

WWF works to protect these places based on the wealth and variety of life they support, the destructive challenges they face, and our ability to positively impact them.

From the Arctic to the Eastern Himalayas, WWF works on every continent to halt and reverse declines in wildlife numbers and the unsustainable use of our natural resources. By working with partners on local and global levels, WWF aims to conserve many of the world’s most ecologically important regions.

In Namibia, we’ve supported a new approach to protect wildlife and habitat—communal conservancies. To save tigers, WWF works with the governments of the 13 nations that are home to wild tigers to commit to doubling tiger populations. Our work focuses on the most extraordinary habitats to ensure people and nature together can thrive.
