Our commitment

We all depend on nature.


Nature is not only a beautiful thing to behold or a restorative retreat for the weary soul, it is the quintessential life provider: supplying food that nourishes, water that replenishes and the raw energy that ignites so many aspects of our modern mostly urban world.

Our shared future

From our impact on our fast changing climate to our free flowing rivers, expansive life giving oceans to vast food supplying landscapes, WWF South Africa catalyses strategic initiatives where there is the greatest need to restore balance, reduce impact and protect our country’s vital resources and natural biodiversity.

By ensuring healthy functioning natural systems, and the species and communities that are an integral part of them, we can help restore and reinforce our planet’s natural defences.

Our contribution

To achieve our vision, our mission – our vital contribution as WWF – is to champion the earth’s capacity, to provide a source of inspiration, sustainable food, water and clean energy for all.

We work to protect our natural resources – oceans, land, wildlife – so that we can continue to benefit from food, energy and fresh water. We work to create a better future of harmonious existence environmentally, economically, socially and individually as aware responsible citizens of the planet.

Working to effect policy and systems of scale, WWF South Africa also influences government and the investment industry to re-direct financial flows away from fossil fuels; we showcase effective solutions in pilot form and lead the way in the transition to a low-carbon economy.


We need the support of everyday citizens to provide small regular donations so that we can continue to do the vital work that we do.
