Building a future in which humans live in harmony with nature is what WWF tries to do. In the interest of nature and man alike. The policy of the World Wide Fund for Nature aims to protect biodiversity on Earth.

WWF Netherlands does this by:

  • Protecting and when needed restoring the worlds’ main habitats. Special attention is paid to tropical and other forests, wetlands and oceans.
  • To address the main threats to these areas, such as deforestation, water depletion, overfishing, climate change and illegal trade in animals and plants.
  • To convince the Dutch society that they can actively contribute to the protection of nature by providing financial action perspectives and non-financial action perspective (participation activities, volunteering, buying FSC-timber, using green energy etc.).
