WWF is the world’s largest independent conservation organisation. We have offices in over 100 countries and 5 million supporters globally. WWF’s unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature. Recently WWF International placed Water as one of its six global priorities.
WWF-Australia is one of the largest offices in the international network with over 100 staff across the country. We have staff experienced across a range of scientific disciplines and are supported by a strong communications team. We work on ground to deliver conservation outcomes but also have a significant advocacy component to our work to achieve the policy and funding outcomes needed for change at scale.
WWF-Australia prides itself on engaging successfully with governments, communities, businesses and individuals. The achievement of our conservation goals depends on collaboration with everyone from ordinary people to the nation’s most influential decision-makers. WWF-Australia has six High Impact Initiatives – with our lead Great Barrier Reef campaign focused on water management. Two of our six High Impacts Initiatives are in the Indo-Pacific region – the Heart of Borneo, and the Coral Triangle. WWF has offices throughout the Indo-Pacific which has a wealth of capacity on water issues, and importantly knowledge of the institutional and cultural challenges of their country.
