The Philippines is home to the richest variety of wildlife on earth, ranking 10th in the world for its biological diversity. The country’s myriad of forests, coral reefs, sea grass beds, mangroves, lakes and rivers breed an impressive array of plant and animal species. Biodiversity and the services they render support critical life systems that provide us with food, water, clean air, clothing and medicine.
The organization's conservation program places strong emphasis on the conservation of species and habitats and utilizes highly integrative and participatory approaches to find solutions that work for the environment and for the people that live in and depend on it.
As the scope of WWF’s work has now broadened, we now engage corporations in addressing their environmental impacts and to integrate sustainability measures into core business processes. The imminent danger of climate change renders our corporate focus all the more critical as industry is a major contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions.
