WWF has become the world's largest and most
respected nature conservation organisation.
Many species are endangered, major risks to their survival include
threats of poaching for ivory, use of animal parts in Asian medicines,
trading in 'exotic meats' and loss of habitat.
During its 40-plus-year history, WWF has been
involved in countless successful conservation initiatives.
In the 1930s, there were only 20 or 30 Siberian tigers recorded

still at risk, but this is an encouraging improvement and the
work of the WWF continues.
This is one of many successes, see our website
