Help WWF Protect Wildlife and Their Habitat

Help WWF Protect Our World

The goal of WWF is to help with nature conservation and mitigate some of the most pressing threats to Earth’s biodiversity. The organisation seeks to create a world where nature and people can live together in harmony. WWF is the largest conservation group in the World, working in over 90 countries through a global network.

WWF is a science based organisation that offers constructive solutions to fundamental issues affecting the world, such as species survival, habitat destruction, sustainable development and climate change. WWF has over 5 million members globally with 90% of its revenue coming from voluntary donations made by individuals and businesses alike.

Why Become a WWF Member?

Did you know that every day there are more African elephants being slaughtered for their tusks than are actually being born? Humans have had a major impact on wildlife all over the world and very little of it has been positive. Fortunately, there are organisations like WWF that are doing everything they can to make a difference but they can’t do it alone. WWF needs your assistance in order to allow them to protect our planet and its amazing wildlife. If that is not enough to convince you, here are 5 reasons why you should become a member of WWF.

 

1. Help restore wildlife numbers

It’s no secret that a large number of species all over the world are becoming endangered. There are a number of reasons for this, the two most important of which are habitat destruction and poaching. You can help WWF restore the numbers of species that are in danger of going extinct by funding conservation campaigns that will allow endangered species to replenish their numbers.

2. Help protect fragile ecosystems and wildlife populations

Our rainforests are being cleared and oceans polluted at an alarming rate. These ecosystems are extremely fragile and damaging them puts many species at risk. By becoming a member of WWF, you will be helping to protect our rainforests, rivers and oceans as well as the animals that depend on them.

3. Support the fight against climate change

Another major threat to both human and animal life on the planet is global warming. As the planet heats up there are implications for all sorts of species that depend on stable temperatures to survive. Polar bears are facing starvation as the sea ice melts earlier every year, penguins are unable to reproduce and dolphins have to swim further out to sea in order to feed as the oceans warm. WWF is trying to influence policy so that we limit our carbon emissions and prevent catastrophic climate change.

4. Support WWF’s efforts at introducing sustainable fishing and logging practices

Overfishing and deforestation has had a devastating impact on species that live in the oceans and forests. This is wholly unnecessary because with a little bit of management, it is possible to fish and log in a manner that is sustainable. By supporting WWF you will be helping the organisation do the important work that it does educating and encouraging these industries to adopt more environmentally friendly business practices.

5. Help clean up our rivers

For decades now, we have been polluting our rivers with no thought to the consequences. Rivers are living breathing ecosystems and in many parts of the world some rivers have simply died and no longer support any life whatsoever. We can reverse this process by cleaning our rivers up. By becoming a member of WWF you will be helping to drive that change.

Scientists Can Now Track Penguin Huddles In Real Time

On Antarctica’s harsh frozen landscape, emperor penguins huddle together to defend themselves from the cold and windy weather. The huddling allows the penguins to pool their warmth and conserve energy during periods between forages and breeding. This behaviour has been documented for a long time but now scientists have the technology to observe the evolution of a penguin huddle. The study revealed the main trigger prompting penguins to huddle and reaffirmed the purpose of the behaviour.  

US Lifts Ban On Elephant Trophy Hunting Angering Millions

There has been an angry line drawn in the sands of the Southern part of the African continent. On one side you will find a pack of conservationists and biologists demanding action and on the other are a group consisting of politicians and hunters refusing to compromise. Recently the United States lifted its ban on the importation of wildlife trophies such as elephants and this has led to the outbreak of all out war between the two groups who both claim to represent the best interests of wildlife.

Asian Elephants Face New Threat From Growing Chinese Demand For Skin Products

A UK based conservation group says that growing Chinese demand for elephant skin products is resulting in greater poaching of the protected species. The increased demand poses an even greater threat to the wild elephants of Asia than even the illegal trade in ivory the group claims. The Elephant Family released a report which suggests that the threat to the Asian elephant is most severe in Myanmar and also warned that if conditions continue to worsen, the species could vanish from half the areas they currently inhabit.

Tiger Mauls Zookeeper At Cruel Zoo

A cruel zookeeper who allegedly used to boil the bones of big cats has been killed by a tiger. The unnamed 50-year-old man was cleaning the tiger’s enclosure when he was attacked last month. The man had been left alone inside the enclosure at the Xiongsen Bear and Tiger Mountain Village in the Chinese city of Guilin. The zoo claims to have over 1,100 captive tigers and 600 Asian black bears and at one point in time was the largest breeding facility in China.
