WWF's work

Today, we stand on the brink of losing the Amazon as we know it. And if we lose the Amazon, we lose our fight against climate change. 

We’re working hard to protect this precious place, as well as the wildlife that lives there. We’re also working to support the rights of the indigenous and traditional people that call the Amazon home. This is not just about saving a forest, it’s about our one shared home and the future survival of all of us.
