WWF projects can be viewed with this virtual tour which shows how WWF works to save species and people around the world. Web users can see WWF projects from an aerial perspective and then zoom into the finest detail, clicking on regions to read about WWF's campaigns and achievements.
James Leape, Director General WWF International explained how Google Earth highlights WWF's work, such as in the Campo-Ma'an National Park in Cameroon.
"The Campo-Ma'an Park is a nature lover's paradise with 80 species of mammals, including endangered elephants, gorillas and chimpanzees, as well as at least 302 species of birds, 122 species of reptiles, more than 80 species of amphibians, 249 species of fish and a high level of endemic plant life."
"However, it is the local people who make this area so special. The communities living near the park are keen to protect their natural resources but also desperate for economic development. WWF is working in partnership with them to promote community-based nature tourism," said Leape.
