The World Wildlife Fund

 

The World Wildlife Fund, or WWF, is an organisation that works tirelessly to reverse the harm that people cause the environment, either purposely, or accidentally. It is a group that relies on the participation of others who care about saving the world in which we live. Interestingly, it tackles a variety of major issues, such as pollution, climate change, animal populations, and supporting new laws. Most importantly, the WWF thrives on education. Education of others is the key to helping them to understand the ways in which human actions can help or hurt the world. Here are some ways that this organisation makes a difference.

 

Studies show that young people are the key to protecting the earth. When people are young, their growing brains allow them to learn much more quickly. They are impressionable, and they are not set in their ways in terms of environmental action. Many adults allow politics and personal beliefs to get in the way of what is right. The World Wildlife Fund take steps to help young people to understand the importance of protecting the environment. They partner with schools to educate kids through seminars and educational videos. These people also provide concrete ways for kids to to start making a difference.

 

Sustainability is a key issue that the WWF tackles. Growing populations throughout the world are consuming the earth's natural resources at an alarming rate. Although certain advances have allowed manufacturers to become much more efficient with the ways in which they cultivate food, there are still areas of the world tat do not care about smart practices. Different farming measures must be explored in order to preserve natural resources. For example, some fertilisers leak into drinking water streams and lakes. Once they become polluted, they sicken both people and animals.

 

Climate change is another area in which the WWF works. One of the prime examples of climate change is taking place in the northern reaches of most countries. Glacier melts are causing some animals to die off at a rapid rate. Polar bears rely on sheet ice to hunt and survive, but much of this ice is melting due to an increase in temperatures. This phenomenon is called global warming. Pollution is the main culprit behind the issue. The WWF works to limit the production of greenhouse gas emissions to try to reverse the effects of global warming.

 

Educational efforts and direct petitions by the WWF are taking place throughout the world so that laws might be passed to protect the world's resources, as well as its animals. They contact local governments and law makers to bring attention to the severity of the major climate issues that plague the world. This organisation has helped to bring laws to fruition. Some of these laws relate to deforestation and hunting practices. When pressure is put on governments to take a firm stance on protecting the environment, then real change is achieved. This is why it is so important to support the WWF.
