You can have an extraordinary, positive impact on our natural world. When you help WWF protect species, you contribute to a thriving, healthy planet. However you choose to support WWF, we are deeply grateful.
Over the last 50 years, we at WWF India are on a mission to protect critical species of national and global importance in collaboration with the Government, local communities, state forest departments, and various conservation partners. Our concerted efforts have resulted in a significant increase in the protection of many priority species and their critical habitats.
WWF India began tiger conservation in the early 1970s by providing support to Project Tiger - the first-ever tiger conservation programme of the Govt. of India. In 1990s, WWF India initiated a focused Tiger Conservation Programme & currently works in six tiger landscapes: Terai Arc, Sundarbans, Central India, Brahmaputra, Western Ghats - Nilgiris and Western India Tiger Landscapes.
Freshwater environments include rivers, lakes, wetlands, streams and underground aquifers. Freshwater is crucial for sustenance of life on the planet. WWF India’s River for Life, Life for River programme is aimed at ensuring ecological integrity of rivers and their associated ecosystems, and sustainable water management.
Climate change is the biggest environmental crisis of our time. Many species will face extinction due to global warming. WWF India is working to generate awareness about clean and efficient energy solutions, climate innovations and mobilizing communities to come together and take collective action reversing climate change.
India’s has rich dazzling marine biodiversity. Marine life is threatened by plastic pollution, industrial waste, unsustainable fishing, unregulated tourism and unplanned coastal development. WWF India is working to protect and conserve critical marine habitats by addressing the issues of ghost fishing, agricultural run-off, marine debris and plastic pollution.
I believe that the survival of animals and trees is essential for the planet. They are also crucial for the survival of the human species. Our natural world has learned to co-exist since time immemorial. Every human must ensure that this symbiotic relationship continues. I see WWF leading the path to protect different species as well as preserve our fragile ecosystems. Simply stated, if we lose ecosystems like forests, grasslands, and wetlands, we risk losing our precious wildlife. The change should come from people – let us start taking care of our planet!”
The WWF logo serves as a constant reminder to me on the urgent need for humans to reconnect with the environment and natural world, which we are just a tiny part of. WWF truly inspires me to do whatever I can to help humanity respect the wild, treasure and nurture it for generations to come.
WWF India is indeed doing excellent work in furthering the cause of wildlife conservation and promoting the cause widely in our country. They are proactive, always responsive to requests, and continuously find innovative means of connecting back with the community. As a wildlife photographer, nature lover, and conservationist, I have discovered WWF India as a trusted platform for furthering the mission of building a world where people and nature co-exists peacefully.
