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.
People and nature rely on healthy forests. Eight out of 10 land-dwelling species and nearly 750 million people live in and depend on forests for goods and services such as food, wood, medicine, fresh water, and air. Despite their importance, threats to the world's forests are growing at an alarming rate. To protect biodiversity, maintain ecosystem services, and regulate the climate, it is vital that forests are protected and restored where they have been lost.
Most of WWF’s work is focused in tropical rainforests, which are the most biologically diverse and complex forests on Earth. To ensure that communities and institutions have the resources to restore these landscapes, EFN invests in local organizations dedicated to expanding forest cover, creating biological corridors, and restoring watersheds. EFN supports the restoration of native biodiversity and ecosystem services with a focus on planting the right trees in the right places.
