About The Organization

WWF-India has been working towards wildlife and environment protection in the country since 1969. We are part of the WWF-International network which has offices in more than 100 countries across the globe. We have a national presence in India with over 60 state and field offices distributed across more than 20 states. We work in different geographical regions of the country towards the conservation of key wildlife species, protection of habitats, management of rivers, wetlands and their ecosystems, climate change mitigation, sustainable livelihood alternatives for local communities, water and carbon footprint reduction in industries, and combating illegal wildlife trade.

History of WWF:

World Wide Fund for Nature-India (WWF-India) was founded with the express objective of ensuring the conservation of the country's wildlife and natural habitats. It was set up as a Charitable Public Trust on 27 November 1969. It was then known as the World Wildlife Fund-India, much before the terms 'wildlife' and 'environment' had caught the attention of the government or the public. 

WWF-India's modest beginnings entailed operating out of a limited office space at Horn Bill House in Mumbai and very few full-time staff. The running of the office relied largely on the goodwill of the close-knit group of its founders, and other associates who voluntarily contributed their time and resources to the work of the organization. Throughout the seventies and eighties, WWF-India kept its focus primarily on wildlife and nature conservation. It would be near impossible to list all its projects and other activities in the field of wildlife. 

Today, WWF-India is not only the country's largest voluntary body in the field of conservation, it has also grown into a network with a countrywide presence, It has taken on diverse activities in the field of nature protection – ranging from education and capacity-building, to field projects in biodiversity, enviro-legal action, policy studies and advocacy, and even areas such as religion and conservation.
