About World Wide Fund for Nature
World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has the mission to stop the worldwide destruction of nature and create a future in which people and nature live together in harmony. It became the largest and most influential environmental organisation in Germany. Their projects are national and international and prove that the responsible use of natural resources are compatible with sustainable economic development. In Germany, the organisation is particularly committed to the protection of the North Sea and Baltic Sea, coasts, river systems, wetlands and forests and want to ensure that endangered species such as the wolf, lynx, bear, otter, eagle and sturgeon can colonise their habitats undisturbed and are respected as inhabitants and indicators of an intact nature.

World Wide Fund for Nature Impressions
WeForest is an international non-profit that develops high quality forest restoration and conservation projects for companies committed to stopping global warming. In addition to drawing CO2 out of the atmosphere, trees balance the Earth’s water cycle which is essential for cooling our climate. Moreover, growing trees through WeForest helps provide income to local people, improves the health of the soil and benefits biodiversity.
Their vision is a world where communities and nations sustainably manage their forests and natural resources for the benefit of our climate, our environment and humanity. While their mission is to build upon corporate and scientific partnerships, WeForest empowers communities to sustainably advance and implement innovative, high standard, scalable and lasting solutions to restore forest landscapes. WeForest has the goal to successfully transform 250,000 ha of existing forest landscape by 2021, as well as restoring 25,000 ha of former forest land including the plantation of 25 million trees, while demonstrating Forest and Landscape Restoration best practices in different ecosystems. WeForest is committed to developing applied research projects that will help understand and improve practices. Currently, the organization is active in Tanzania, Ethiopia, Brazil, Malawi, Zambia, and India. Active Giving specifically supports the Brazil forest project.
