  • Collaborative platform for African nature-based tourism enterprises, conservation areas and local communities – a response to COVID-19

    The Covid-19 crisis has harmed economies and industries all over the world, and nature-based tourism has been one of the leading economic casualties. In response, an African Nature-Based Tourism Collaborative Platform is being developed to connect funders to the communities and small and medium nature-based tourism enterprises most in need of funding support.

  • Wildlife Adaptation Innovation Fund

    WWF’s Wildlife Adaptation Innovation Fund supports the testing of new ideas that have potential to reduce the vulnerability of wildlife to changes in climate through on-the-ground projects. Successes and lessons learned from these pilot projects provide useful guidance that move conservation beyond business-as-usual approaches and successful efforts can be replicated or taken to scale to help wildlife endure under conditions of rapid change.

  • Environmental DNA

    By taking samples of soil, water, snow, or even air, we can access the environmental DNA (or eDNA) that animals naturally shed—like hair, skin, and feces—as they move through their environment. eDNA can then be used to detect endangered species, study the impacts of climate change, alert us to invisible threats such as pathogens, and assess the overall health of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
