Friends of WWF-Canada

Learn about the Friends of WWF-Canada, a group of conservation-minded leaders who are making a difference for nature.

We believe that friendship is about connecting around a shared passion for nature, having fun together, and paying-it-forward. We are the most recognized and beloved environmental organization in Canada, with a 50-year track record of conservation success that attracts benevolent people who want to make a difference.

Nalini Stewart

“ The global environmental crisis is increasingly top of mind for Canadians now. Together the twin challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss pose an existential threat to all life on the planet. Friends offers a chance to both learn and make a meaningful contribution to help solve these challenges. ”
- Nalini Stewart, National Chair of Friends of WWF-Canada
