World Wide Fund for Nature (formerly World Wildlife Fund) operated in Thailand in 1995. The mission is to ensure that there will be strong participation and support from all people to conserve the country’s rich biological diversity and increase the impact of its conservation action for a Living Planet.
WWF came into existence on 29 April 1961, when a small group of passionate and committed individuals signed a declaration that came to be known as the Morges Manifesto.

This apparently simple act laid the foundations for one what has grown into the world's largest independent conservation organization.

More than 50 years on, the black and white panda is a well known household symbol in many countries. And the organization itself is lucky enough to have won the backing of more than 5 million people throughout the world, and can count the actions taken by people in support of its efforts into the billions. 

WWF's 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, by;
- Conserving the world's biological diversity
- Ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and
- Promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption
