World Wildlife Fund

WWF Canada works to conserve species at risk, protect threatened habitats, and address climate change. We draw on indigenous knowledge and implement nature-based solutions that challenge the way we work and redefine humanity’s relationship with the planet. WWF-Canada’s long term vision is simple: to create a world where people and nature thrive.
