South Africa’s natural wealth is extraordinary, boasting exceptional species richness, diversity and uniqueness. But South Africa is also the most unequal society in the world, with a legacy of division and inequity. For this reason, tackling environmental challenges such as nature loss and climate change must involve the participation and support of the people impacted by such interventions. This is our approach.
To achieve a future in which both people and nature thrive, WWF is guided by six strategic outcomes, each with its own clearly defined targets, associated measures and activities. This framework ensures that we are accountable to ourselves and to you – our funders, our supporters and all our partners and stakeholders.

WWF’s work is focused in areas where ecological integrity and the delivery of nature’s resources are of greatest importance. These priority areas are the Fynbos, Succulent Karoo and Grasslands biomes, the strategic water source areas, the black rhino range expansion habitats and important coastal, inshore and offshore marine ecosystems. Our urban focus spans across South Africa’s key metros and several secondary cities.Download the map
The baobab tree – the roots, trunk, branches, leaves – is the perfect visual representation of WWF. Found in belts across Africa, it is commonly referred to as the “tree of life”, because of its high resilience and remarkable ability to regenerate. The baobab also provides many services including fruit and water, shade and shelter to people and animals. It is therefore a proud symbol of who we are and what we represent.Explore the tree
