WWF is one of the world’s largest and most respected independent conservation organizations, with over 5 million supporters and a global network active in more than 100 countries and territories. WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of the Earth'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, and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.
In Romania, WWF is working since 2006 on Forests, Freshwater and Wildlife, particularly bison, bears and sturgeons.
WWF Romania is working at national and local level through lobbying, capacity building, implementing conservation projects (old-growth forest, wetlands restoration, large carnivores conservation, ecological corridors designation, green infrastructures, climate change adaptation) stakeholder and experts’ involvement, fostering local NGOs capacity and coordinating conservation partners’ efforts. Significant emphasis is put on public communications and awareness rising, e.g. through media work, campaigns, business engagement, educational programmes and national public events. WWF Romania has also been engaged in regional awareness raising campaigns, involving stakeholders and media from the Danube Carpathian Region.
