WWF is a leading global conservation organisation, with a global network active in more than 100 countries.
WWF’s mission is to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. WWF was founded in 1961 with headquarters based in Switzerland. Operating for nearly fifty years, WWF has forged unprecedented global partnerships with governments, other NGOs and the private sector, and has inspired individuals to take action and make a difference.
WWF-Hong Kong has been working since 1981 to deliver solutions for a living planet through Conservation, Footprint and Education programmes. Since 1983, WWF-Hong Kong has actively managed the Mai Po Nature Reserve (a 380 hectare area in Deep Bay), located on the northwestern corner of Hong Kong which is among Asia’s finest locations for wetland biodiversity.
