Since its inception WWF has developed a range of trusts to further our conservation work. These trusts each have specific areas of focus which will assist WWF with achieving its goal of stopping the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and building a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. 

The Green Trust– a partnership between WWF and Nedbank – is aimed at bringing people and nature together and has been funding initiatives aimed at achieving this since 1990.

The Leslie Hill Succulent Karoo Trust is focused on purchasing high value biodiversity land in the Succulent Karoo and setting it aside for conservation, while The Table Mountain Fund funds initiatives aimed at conserved the Cape Floristic Region.

The National Parks Trust was established in 1968 to enhance South Africa’s protected area network and the Southern African Conservation Education Trust (SACET) was established to ensure a permanent income stream for education and training of SADC conservation managers at the Southern African Wildlife College.
