WWF’s global mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.
WWF-Australia is part of the WWF International Network, the world’s leading, independent conservation organisation.
Founded in 1961 we are active in over 100 countries and have close to five million supporters internationally.
In Australia and throughout the oceanic region, we work with governments, businesses and communities so that people and nature can thrive within their fair share of the planet’s natural resources.
WWF's mission is to halt the decline of threatened plants and animals and to support their recovery. We do this by addressing the threats that affect them using the best available science while working in partnership with communities, Indigenous groups, government and business.
We’re focussing on sustainable fisheries, resilient marine ecosystems and clean oceans. The health of our reefs and surrounding oceans means reducing threats to the sharks, rays, penguins, cetaceans and marine turtles that these animals call home.
Our drive is to promote a sustainable food system that will conserve nature and feed humanity. We’re looking to reduce waste and environmental impact that contribute to social and economic outcomes.
We’re tackling climate change by working directly with entrepreneurs, investors and business to support and promote innovative, low carbon and zero carbon solutions.

It takes a special set of skills to care for Australia’s vast and diverse nature. Enter the strong Indigenous women rangers.
The world is changing fast. Our wildlife and wild places face unprecedented challenges. The result is people yearn more for nature and are connected with each other like never before.
While WWF is only one environment conservation organisation, we'll ultimately achieve more by partnering, sharing, empowering communities, forming alliances and building a movement for the environment. Working together is the answer. It is WWF-Australia's goal to bring about this unified voice for nature.

Our oceans are home to incredible marine wildlife. Help WWF-Australia conserve our marine environment and become and protect our oceans today.
Together, we’re working to protect Australia’s threatened wildlife and the places they call home.
WWF is Australia’s most trusted conservation organisation. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians, whose land we work upon and we pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. At WWF, we work in Australia and in our Asia-Pacific backyard to protect endangered species and habitats, meet the challenge of climate change, and build a world where people live in harmony with nature.
