World Wide Fund for Nature - India

Conservation of India’s wildlife and natural habitats

WWF-INDIA was founded with the mission to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. As part of this, they work to conserve the country’s biological diversity, major ecosystems and landscapes; promote sustainable use of natural resources, and the active involvement of rural communities in the conservation of natural resources. As part of this, they encourage the participation of different sections of society in conserving nature through awareness and education, and promote environmental governance in legislation and policy. They work with priority species (Bengal tiger, one-horned rhino), critical regions (Sunderbans, Terai Arc, Kaziranga), and with climate change and energy, sustainable agriculture, and businesses.

Why are they the right choice for others:

  • Work at scale to meet 2050 Biodiversity goal through focus on critical regions and priority species of India’s natural heritage and their numbers and health through policy and campaigns.
  • Work at scale to reduce India’s country’s footprint and sustain natural resources.
