2011 marks an incredible 50 year anniversary for the internationally known wildlife conservation group, World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
Founded on 29th of April, 1961 by a group of professionals (including scientists and political leaders) concerned for the conservation of wildlife throughout the world, the organization aimed to make the world aware of then seemingly unimportant issues regarding the conservation, research and restoration of the environment.
You would be forgiven in believing that the WWF only looks after endangered animals by offering sponsorship and although sponsorship is an integral part of the organization, they have always worked hard and still do on issues such as ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable and helping to promote the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption of which the modern world has always failed to address with pro-active policies, however we all hope that in this new millennium we will be able to see each world country finally take responsibility for it’s harmful actions and see sense, following in the incredible example of the WWF.
Having close to five million members throughout the world, WWF is still committed as ever to reversing the degradation of our planets natural environment and hope that one day humans can co-exist in harmony with nature.
Their current goal is to conserve 19 of the world’s most important natural places and significantly change global markets securing future protection of nature and our environment.
