The WWF is run at a local level by the following offices...
We need to value our diverse wildlife.
We share our planet with millions of species of plants and animals - a wondrous variety of wildlife that enriches our lives in so many ways. Our planet’s wildlife is in crisis – numbers have fallen by more than half since 1970, and species are going extinct at an alarming rate.
Demand from Asia, for wildlife parts and products, continues to drive this black market trade. This challenge is exacerbated by the involvement of organised crime networks.
WWF has been involved in species conservation and addressing the threats to wildlife since the 1960s. More recently we work closely with rural communities who live near to major wildlife areas. By empowering people who might otherwise be open to exploitation, we enable the community to benefit from – and value – wildlife, alive rather than dead. In all we do, we take a holistic approach towards ensuring that wildlife is valued by people and able to thrive within functioning well-managed landscapes.
Focusing on Mae Wong and Khlong Lan area, one of the most fertile forests in Thailand, WWF works with DNP and local communities to develop sustainable ways that will help protect these endangered tigers.
Sustainable conservation of wildlife requires effective protection and law enforcement, as well as cooperation from local people. Learn how we collaborate with DNP and WCS to achieve this goal at Kaeng Krachan Forest.
