What We Do

World Wildlife Fund Canada is the country’s largest international conservation organization. Guided by the best scientific analysis and Indigenous knowledge, we work to conserve species at risk, protect threatened habitats, and address climate change. Our long-term vision is simple: to create a world where nature and people thrive.

Wildlife

Our planet’s biodiversity is in crisis. Global wildlife populations have declined by 60 per cent on average over the past 40 years — and about half of Canada’s populations are also experiencing decline. WWF-Canada is working to reverse this.

Habitat

In Canada, 84 per cent of habitats with high concentrations of at-risk species are inadequately or not at all protected. Alongside local and national partners, WWF-Canada is working to conserve ecologically important regions, create a network of protected areas and restore habitat across the country.
