WWF-UKWWF's mission is to stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. We do this by:
- conserving the world's biological diversity
- ensuring that the use of renewable resources is sustainable
- promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.
WWF is the world's largest independent global conservation organisation. We are best known for our programmes to protect endangered species and their habitats, and much of our work is in areas where the most critically endangered wildlife and the least protected habitats are found. However, this is only part of what we do.
We also work to address global threats such as climate change, the consumption of natural resources and the use of toxic chemicals. We influence attitudes and behaviour through lobbying, campaigning and education, and work with people at all levels - both in the UK and around the world - to seek long-term sustainable solutions for the benefit of people and nature.
