Our mission: Preserving biodiversity - a living planet for us and our children.

WWF is one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in Germany. Our national and international projects help to achieve our goals and prove that conservation and responsible use of natural resources are compatible with sustainable economic development.

Nationally and internationally, WWF makes an effective contribution to the preservation of biodiversity, uniqueness and beauty of nature in selected key ecological regions. In Germany, we are particularly committed to the protection of the North and Baltic Seas, coasts, river systems, wetlands and forests, and want to ensure that endangered species can colonize their habitats undisturbed and are respected as inhabitants and indicators of an intact natural environment. About 50 percent of Germany's national territory is used for agriculture. This clearly shows the influence of agriculture on the preservation of flora and fauna. The WWF has therefore set itself the goal of reconciling agricultural production with the preservation of ecosystems, while at the same time seeking ways to make this economically feasible for farms. To achieve this goal, WWF is increasingly focusing on dialogue with farmers, science, politics and society. The "Transformation Research agrar" network stands out here as an important platform that can make a significant contribution, particularly through its broad scientific expertise.
