What is WWF South Africa?

WWF is one of the world’s largest and most respected independent conservation organisations, with almost six million supporters and a global network active in over 100 countries. 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. WWF South Africa is a national office that is part of the WWF network. We are a local NGO that for 50 years has worked towards the aim of inspiring all South Africans to live in harmony with nature, for the benefit of our country and the well-being of all our people. 

Reduce, reuse & recycle your plastic.

Over 8 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans each year and the impacts of plastic pollution can be seen across our oceans – from the Arctic to Antarctica.

 Funds raised will support…

The funding will support the WWF-SA Marine Protected Areas Programme. Marine protected areas aim to conserve marine life and promote the conservation and effective management of biodiverse marine areas. They are an example of successful collaboration between civil society, communities and government to take care of our natural resources, particularly our marine resources. This programme is geared at establishing a Secretariat and working with various stakeholders to ensure we increase the number of MPA’s  along our coasts in order to safeguard our oceans and its resources.
