World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF-Canada) was founded in 1967 by Senator Alan MacNaughton, and has become one of the country’s leading conservation organizations, enjoying the active support of more than 150,000 Canadians. We connect the power of a highly respected and effective global network to on-the-ground efforts across Canada, through our operations in Vancouver, Prince Rupert, St. Albert’s, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, St. John’s, and a growing presence in the Arctic.
To stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by:
- conserving the world’s biological diversity,
- ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable,
- promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption
WWF’s conservation results include the protection of 38 million hectares of Canadian wilderness through the Endangered Spaces Campaign; the creation of critical marine protected areas on all three coasts, including Gwaii Haanas and Bowie Seamount off the
coast of in BC, Ninginganiq on Baffin Island in the Arctic, and the Gully off the coast of Nova Scotia; and the establishment of the largest freshwater reserve in the world in western Lake Superior.
