When you run the Marine Corps Marathon with World Wildlife Fund’s Panda Nation, you’ll tackle the biggest challenges facing the planet—things like illegal wildlife trade, deforestation, climate change and water scarcity. While those challenges are massive, when we work together, we can take on anything. That’s why every day, WWF works in unity with many people, partners, and institutions to achieve lasting conservation solutions.
WWF’s work has evolved from saving species and landscapes to addressing the larger global threats and forces that impact them. Recognizing that the problems facing our planet are increasingly more complex and urgent, we have refined the way in which we work around an ambitious strategy. Our strategy puts people at the center and organizes our work around six key areas: forests, marine, freshwater, wildlife, food, and climate. By linking these six areas in an integrated approach, we can better leverage our unique assets and direct all our resources to protecting vulnerable places, species, and communities worldwide.
People are at the center of our work because together we can change the trajectory of the threats to nature and help ensure nature’s ability to provide—for the sake of every living thing, including ourselves.
