Here are some info about WWF-Philippines
pls allow me to copy paste-all
The World Wide Fund for Nature or WWF is Earth’s largest and most experienced conservation organization, operating in over 100 countries through the support of over five million people worldwide.
WWF-Philippines was founded in 1997 and spearheads practical solutions to help the country adapt to climate change, secure food sources to alleviate poverty, conserve local ecosystems to preserve natural benefits, empower communities to live low-impact lives and promote renewable sources of clean energy
FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE
Pinoys are among the world’s most vulnerable people to climate change.
With an average of 20 typhoons hitting the country yearly, thousands of people might lose their lives, homes and livelihoods unless we learn to mitigate and adapt to changing weather patterns.
WWF's climate and energy vision is a response both to scientific recommendations plus economic and political realities.
Today, we help Pinoy families, communities and cities adapt to climate change by strengthening their resilience to storms and floods, while promoting a shift to clean and renewable sources of energy such as wind, solar and geothermal power
SECURING FOOD SOURCES
While we live in relative comfort, many Pinoys will go to bed hungry. By 2050, the world will have two billion more people to feed. However, we are currently using more resources that more than one and a half planet Earths can provide – meaning we are operating at an ecological deficit.
Unfortunately, unsustainable farming and fishing, pollution, plus climate change are reducing our ability to produce food. Failure to safeguard our natural resources will have disastrous implications for global food security.
WWF now develops and spearheads science and community-led solutions like smart agriculture plus sustainable fisheries to help Filipinos produce more food with less resources.
CONSERVING ENDANGERERD SPECIES
From giant whale sharks to ever-elusive tamaraw, WWF works to conserve the country's rarest and most endangered species. However, the Earth is still losing about 200 species daily. The loss of iconic species is tantamount to the destruction of some of the planet’s most productive habitats.
Through your help and the vital support of our partners, we shall ensure the survival of native species while keeping our land and seascapes healthy and productive.
We do this not merely for conservation's sake – but to make people's lives and livelihoods better.
SECURING FRESH WATER FOR ALL
Did you know that it takes about 5000 liters of water to produce a kilogram of rice? The rising human population plus increasing income levels are leading to a higher demand for water-intensive products. This is driving the over-extraction of freshwater. Unsustainable human activities continue to pollute freshwater ecosystems.
Rivers have gone dry, freshwater sources have become polluted and freshwater species are disappearing. WWF works with governments and businesses to manage natural watersheds and improve the way freshwater is collected, helping secure drinking water for all Pinoys. After all – no water, no life.
The work WWF does goes beyond science, beyond policy and beyond traditional conservation. Our solutions are positively transforming the lives of all Filipinos – especially farmers, fisherfolk, field rangers, indigenous people and other sectors of Philippine society which rely most on nature for food and livelihoods. Here are some stories of the people we helped. Save the environment and transform lives by supporting WWF today!
