Bringing together his two loves, tennis and wildlife, Andy hopes to highlight the fight against the illegal wildlife trade as he showcases his skills on the global stage.
Global ambassador Andy Murray said: I'm extremely proud to support WWF and it's great to be able to raise global awareness for their work to protect some of the most iconic, yet threatened species on our planet. While the spotlight will be on the players during the tournament, I hope that supporters will also take a moment to find out more about WWF's work and my particular interest in their fight against the illegal wildlife trade."
This isn't the first time that Andy Murray has combined his two passions.
Since becoming one of our global ambassadors, Andy has been supporting our fight against poaching and illegal wildlife trade. The British number one is particularly passionate about raising awareness for our initiative in Nepal that supports the use and training of dogs to track down poaching activity in and around Chitwan National Park. So much so that during The Championships, Wimbledon, Andy took time out of his busy training schedule to film two videos to highlight the role of sniffer dogs in the fight against illegal wildlife trade. The videos reached millions of people across the world and helped raise awareness and vital funds to tackle the wildlife crime.
Heather Sohl, Chief Advisor on Species said: "Andy's support for our fight against poaching has been fantastic in raising both the crucial funds and awareness necessary to help tackle the illegal wildlife trade. It's wonderful to have this opportunity to highlight our work on a global stage and as always, we wish Andy the best of luck on court."
Everyone can play their part in tackling the illegal wildlife trade, which sees approximately 30,000 African elephants killed by poachers each year. Find out more Andy and the work he's supporting.
