WWF supports local conservation efforts

WWF-Canada recognizes that we can do more together to reverse the decline of wildlife, supporting each other, than we can alone. 
WWF is proud to offer several granting initiatives to individuals, community groups, schools, students and local conservation organizations who are working on the ground to restore habitat, advance scientific research and address the major threats to wildlife and our freshwater ecosystems.
