Is the WWF trustworthy?
The World Wildlife Fund is one of the largest and most recognizable conservation groups in the world. But as with any massive, deep-pocketed organization, the WWF has been riddled with corruption. Beyond corruption, the WWF has been tied to human rights atrocities throughout the planet.

What do the initials WWF stand for? When WWF was first set up in 1961, WWF stood for World Wildlife Fund.

WWF works to help local communities conserve the natural resources they depend upon; transform markets and policies toward sustainability; and protect and restore species and their habitats. Our efforts ensure that the value of nature is reflected in decision-making from a local to a global scale.
Does WWF support zoos?
