Global conservation projects

The future of all living things rests on the health of our planet. But biodiversity – our life-support system - is under threat, as we use more natural resources than the Earth can replace each year.

To survive and prosper we must urgently change course towards a healthy ecosystem, where people and nature can thrive in a stable environment. To achieve this enormous challenge, WWF has embarked on a bold and innovative approach to focus our global network’s considerable efforts on specific priority places and issues.

WWF’s Global Conservation Projects are visionary, large-scale efforts that focus our work where it is most needed to ensure the best possible results over the widest range of environmental issues.

Our goals are ambitious, yet achievable, tapping into WWF’s credibility, global reach, expertise, access to decision-makers, and our ability to forge powerful partnerships to meet the needs of both humans and nature.

Right now we are focusing our global efforts on the following ares:
* Internally, each of these projects is known as a WWF Network Initiative.

In Australia, we have developed six High Impact Initiatives of work, that are most relevant to our region and that we can have the great impact on. These six ‘High Impact Initiatives’ projects feed into WWF’s global conservation projects.
