About WWF

WWF Indonesia‘s  ultimate goal is to stop and eventually reverse environmental degradation and to build a future where people live in harmony with nature.

WWF’s mission is to conserve biodiversity and reducing human impact through:

  • Promoting strong conservation ethics, awareness and actions in Indonesia society.
  • Facilitating multi-stakeholders efforts to preserve biodiversity & ecological processes on ecoregional scale.
  • Advocating for policies, law and law enforcement that support conservation.
  • Promoting conservation for the well-being of people, through sustainable use of natural resources.

WWF-Indonesia are currently running conservation programs in 23 sites in 16 provinces throughout Indonesia in a number of marine, freshwater and forest ecosystems. They strive to save the diversity of species by promoting sustainable conservation that can give continued social and economic benefits to local communities. WWF also work with various stakeholders to restore damaged ecosystems and mitigate various threats such as climate change and toxic chemicals. Through the Forestry Program WWF runs The Global Forest & Trade Network (GFTN)–an initiative designed to address the forest crisis in Indonesia by working with producers and consumers. Other major programs within WWF include the Marine Program and the Climate and Energy Program.
