Help WWF Protect Wildlife and Their Habitat

Help WWF Protect Our World

The goal of WWF is to help with nature conservation and mitigate some of the most pressing threats to Earth’s biodiversity. The organisation seeks to create a world where nature and people can live together in harmony. WWF is the largest conservation group in the World, working in over 90 countries through a global network.

WWF is a science based organisation that offers constructive solutions to fundamental issues affecting the world, such as species survival, habitat destruction, sustainable development and climate change. WWF has over 5 million members globally with 90% of its revenue coming from voluntary donations made by individuals and businesses alike.

Why Become a WWF Member?

Did you know that every day there are more African elephants being slaughtered for their tusks than are actually being born? Humans have had a major impact on wildlife all over the world and very little of it has been positive. Fortunately, there are organisations like WWF that are doing everything they can to make a difference but they can’t do it alone. WWF needs your assistance in order to allow them to protect our planet and its amazing wildlife. If that is not enough to convince you, here are 5 reasons why you should become a member of WWF.

 

1. Help restore wildlife numbers

It’s no secret that a large number of species all over the world are becoming endangered. There are a number of reasons for this, the two most important of which are habitat destruction and poaching. You can help WWF restore the numbers of species that are in danger of going extinct by funding conservation campaigns that will allow endangered species to replenish their numbers.

2. Help protect fragile ecosystems and wildlife populations

Our rainforests are being cleared and oceans polluted at an alarming rate. These ecosystems are extremely fragile and damaging them puts many species at risk. By becoming a member of WWF, you will be helping to protect our rainforests, rivers and oceans as well as the animals that depend on them.

3. Support the fight against climate change

Another major threat to both human and animal life on the planet is global warming. As the planet heats up there are implications for all sorts of species that depend on stable temperatures to survive. Polar bears are facing starvation as the sea ice melts earlier every year, penguins are unable to reproduce and dolphins have to swim further out to sea in order to feed as the oceans warm. WWF is trying to influence policy so that we limit our carbon emissions and prevent catastrophic climate change.

4. Support WWF’s efforts at introducing sustainable fishing and logging practices

Overfishing and deforestation has had a devastating impact on species that live in the oceans and forests. This is wholly unnecessary because with a little bit of management, it is possible to fish and log in a manner that is sustainable. By supporting WWF you will be helping the organisation do the important work that it does educating and encouraging these industries to adopt more environmentally friendly business practices.

5. Help clean up our rivers

For decades now, we have been polluting our rivers with no thought to the consequences. Rivers are living breathing ecosystems and in many parts of the world some rivers have simply died and no longer support any life whatsoever. We can reverse this process by cleaning our rivers up. By becoming a member of WWF you will be helping to drive that change.

UN Withdraws Funding For Asiatic Cheetah Conservation Dooming The Species To Extinction

The UN has decided it will no longer fund conservation efforts to protect the Asiatic cheetah and experts are warning that species is on the brink of extinction. There are less than 50 wild Asiatic cheetahs left and all of them are in Iran. Conservationists are worried that unless immediate action is taken there is almost no chance that one of Earth’s most distinctive and graceful hunters will survive.

Sumatran Rhinos Have Been On The Decline Since The Last Ice Age

Scientists have managed to decode the Sumatran rhino’s genome. The species is one of the most endangered on the planet and according to its genetic blueprint, its population has been steadily falling for quite a while now. The species population decline began to occur during the last Ice Age when its habitat effectively shrank. Since then humans have been the problem causing populations to fall further. It is estimated that there are fewer than 250 wild Sumatran rhinos left.

Tourists Come Across Unique Sight Of 200 Polar Bears Feasting On Whale Carcass

A group of people on a boat tour in the far Eastern Russian Arctic didn’t know what they were seeing for a good few minutes until they realised that there were as many as 200 polar bears roaming on the slope of a mountain. The tourists said they were gobsmacked by what can only be described as a completely unique situation. The bears were there to feed on the carcass of a bowhead whale that had washed ashore. After eating their fill, they then rested near the source of their meal. The group of bears included a number of families including a couple of mothers who were being trailed by four cubs each.

Trophy Hunting Could Push Species Into Extinction

A new study suggests that hunters who pick targets that stand out from the crowd because of their lustrous manes or impressive horns could well result in species extinction. The research claims that if hunters remove just 5 per cent of high-quality males, then there is a risk that the entire population could be wiped out given that many species already face intense pressure from a fast-changing world.
