What they do
WF works to protect species, oceans, food and climate change. It helps living organisms that are endangered by finding out the threats to the organisms and stopping them from killing them. Pollution, deforestation and poaching have big affects on species and WWF are trying to stop this.
WWF works in 100 different countries to protect the environment and their species.
Australia is home to many amazing and unique animals. WWF work to save 1000s of the worlds species from threats. Some of the species WWF works with are the black flanked rock wallaby, Carnaby's black cockatoo, Southern right whale, Green turtle, orang-utan and the tiger. Most of the animals WWF-Australia works with are in the border of Australia but they also work in some parts of Asia. WWF are trying to stop more species from becoming extinct. Over the last 200 years 29 Australian mammals have become extinct. The main threats that the animals have are fire, illegal wildlife trade and poaching, land clearing, introduced animals and global warming.
Oceans are vital to our living. They feed us, give us more than half of the worlds oxygen and regulate the worlds climate. WWF protect the world's oceans and the marine life. Some of the marine environments WWF Australia work with are the Antarctic Ocean, the Great Barrier Reef, Coral Triangle and the Kimberley. Australia is home to some of the most diverse marine life and WWF is trying to make sure we don't lose them from overfishing, global warming and pollution.
WWF are trying to stop people from using food that affects the environment. They encourage people to use sustainable food that's good for the environment. WWF are working on some priority foods to conserve nature like sugar, beef, farmed seafood, wild seafood and palm oil. Unsustainable food sources are affecting the environment causing biodiversity loss, greenhouse gas emissions and species habitat loss.
Climate change is a big problem in the world and WWF is trying to limit the affect humans are having on it. WWF is trying to: Limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by the end of the century. Achieving net zero carbon pollution in Australia before 2050. Achieving 100% renewable energy in Australia by 2050. WWF are also working with other organisations and groups like Renewable energy buyers, Forest and blue carbon, science based targets, climate finance and CleanTek markets platform. Climate change is a threat to endangered species and the environment.
The WWF can not save the environment and species habitats all alone they need volunteers that's why they need you.
