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.
The House of Representatives on Monday passed the Wildlife Innovation and Longevity Driver Reauthorization (WILD) Act, which would reauthorize critical U.S. Fish and Wildlife conservation programs for five years, including the Multinational Species Conservation Funds to conserve some of the world's most iconic species. In response, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) issued the following statement from Alejandro Pérez, senior vice president of policy and government affairs:
"Renewal of the Multinational Species Conservation Funds will ensure the U.S. continues to lead global efforts to protect endangered elephants, rhinos, tigers, great apes, and sea turtles in the wild. The strong bipartisan support for the WILD Act in today's House vote is a testament to the effectiveness of these programs and the unifying power of efforts to conserve wildlife around the world. WWF thanks Reps. Dave Joyce and Debbie Dingell for their leadership to advance the WILD Act and urges the Senate to pass this important legislation without delay."
