Home of Gorillas launched in February after winning the Beyond Tourism in Africa Innovation Challenge to foster new income-generating ideas beyond tourism for both local communities and wildlife conservation in Africa.
WWF-Thailand's tiger conservation team started working in Mae Wong and Khlong Lan National Parks 10 years ago. Today, they share the exciting news that their camera caught a female tiger prowling through the forest. Watch their video here!
Human-wildlife conflict, which involves many species of wildlife across the globe, is a nuanced and complex issue. Sustainable management of these conflicts and a more significant move towards coexistence can only be achieved by combining a comprehensive suite of measures with efforts to address the drivers or root causes of such conflicts and the associated social dynamics.
Scientists successfully collared two snow leopards in Western Nepal—a feat that will help researchers learn more about this elusive and vulnerable species. The satellite GPS collaring of these big cats brings Nepal’s tally of collared snow leopards to eight.
An international team is working to create a much-needed global ungulate migration atlas to help guide conservation efforts. Ungulates provide most of the prey for the world’s large carnivore and scavenger populations, as well as food and livelihood opportunities for local and Indigenous communities. Their seasonal migrations are necessary for healthy ecosystems and sustaining the animals and people that depend on them.
More than a year after the emergence of COVID-19, WWF worked with GlobeScan to conduct a survey of over 6,500 respondents in the United States, China, Vietnam, Thailand, and Myanmar to build on the learnings from the original 2020 survey and gain a better understanding of consumer insight and perceptions of zoonotic spillover risk.
Snow leopards live in some of the most rugged landscapes in Asia’s high mountains, which makes it incredibly difficult to study these rare and elusive big cats. A large majority of snow leopard habitat remains under-researched, according to the first-ever systematic review of snow leopard research conducted to date.
As fresh snow redecorated the tranquil plains of the Wolakota Buffalo Range, new and precious life entered the world. Two bison calves took their first breaths amid the falling flakes—the first to be born on this ground in at least 140 years.
With climate change driving more extreme heat events in Australia, species across the country are at heightened risk. Flying foxes, in particular, can suffer fatal heat stress when temperatures climb to over 108 degrees, an occurrence growing more and more common across the country. But a successful trial of a system of atmospheric cooling sprinklers has given hope to researchers working to protect this vulnerable species.
an effort to better understand large carnivores like lions and wild dogs,
scientists in Zambia use radio collars to track their movements, distribution,
and behavior. The more we know about these umbrella species, the better we can
protect them and mitigate human-wildlife conflict with the communities they
share land with.
Tigers and the habitat they live in provide untold benefits to people, other wildlife, and the climate. Tom Gray, who is the Tiger Scientist at WWF's Tigers Alive Initiative, explains what's at risk if we were to lose tigers.
Every late winter and early spring, gray whales navigate to the protected bays of the Baja Peninsula, to mate or give birth to their young. Getting up close to these amazing animals is an unforgettable experience.
Mongolia’s first-ever national snow leopard survey shows that the country’s population of this elusive, big cat is stable. The survey confirmed the presence of approximately 953 snow leopards—an exciting discovery because it indicates that current conservation efforts are effective and will help develop future strategies to protect this charismatic big cat.
Women leaders have established themselves as a formidable force in sustainability positions within tech. Though a relatively new discipline, this trend is helping to modernize environmental sustainability and conservation efforts as we know them—and will undoubtedly see its impact grow in the next decade.
Dairy is a staple in the diets of Mongolian people but until recently, the sale of milk products was not a prominent source of income for local herders. As it turns out, diversifying community livelihood options in this village in the Bayan-ulgii province has also led to increased protections for snow leopards in the area. A win for people, and a win for nature.
