I became aware of the need for environmental protection and change in the 1980's. I was aware of some of the big environmental groups, but what caught my attention with WWF was when they purchased land in the rain forest in South America to help stop the slash and burn culture. Since then I have donated to them because what better way to help the earth than to protect the very ground and plants that grow from it.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The information I receive about the environment worldwide. The creativity of WWF when reaching out for publicity and support.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Better protect the earth and the nature that thrives off her. For example, more rain forest protection and more park rangers in African countries to prevent poaching of unique and beautiful animals I have only seen in a zoo.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

WWF is a wonderful and accessible organization for all looking to make a difference in not only the world but in their lives. It's not just about making big changes, but all the little things that can be done to protect our environment, and life in it. WWF provides immense resources in this quest.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the education it provides

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

via the internet and my dealings w/ the organization there

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

triple it by holding fundraisers, or funding preserves and lobbying.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to take one of the trips w/ WWF

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting people to look beyond their own noses and reconnect to the life around them and the origins of things they enjoy, but may soon disappear

One thing I'd also say is that...

it's so easy to get involved

While travelling around the globe I have seen first hand many of the negative effects we are having on our environment, not to mention on our own livelihoods. I think the work WWF is doing to support and encourage communities to live and run sustainably is inspiring. After learning about WWF I joined them on facebook (so I'm able to keep up to date with their ongoings) and choose to work for companies that strive to be ecologically friendly. It isn't all about money, it is also about what we do in our day to day lives to help.

I first notice this foundation back in 1990. I was in sixth grade and our school was taking an interest in our environment. At the end of each year, each 6th grader was to propose a mural suggestion for the rather large mural that would be painted and hung in the class room. This had been a tradition for many years. My mural proposal was completely influenced by my membership to the World Wildlife Fund. I drew 7 endangered species, one from each continent, to represent the fragility of our planet. My proposal won the vote. The World Wildlife Fund has been loyal to the planet. Working hard to educate us all on the reality of extinction and how we can prevent it. For nearly 50yrs, they have creatively inspired us all to do our part to protect, clean-up, and care for our planet and all of whom reside upon it. It is the most widely known and respected conservation group and has proven to be effective in all of its efforts.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They are very well organized. They keep you informed of everything they do in an entertaining newsletter. Their website is easy to navigate and informative. And the deeds they inspired were very rewarding spiratually for me.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have never met anyone who was directly connected to the organization. But I have read of their adventures and find them all to be very genorous of their time and they talents.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save us all.

Ways to make it better...

If I had become a zooologist and volunteered for them.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Laziness, ignorance, greed. The same challenges our planet faces.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Of all the organizations that work for the planet, I have no doubt that this one will follow thru with its promises. That the World Wildlife Fund will stand strong and do their best. Just check out their website and you will agree!

This organization has been extremely helpful not only to animals and the enviroment but to myself as well. I recently adopted a penguin for my little brother and it has made him feel like he is keeper of all the penguins. :) They answered all my questions in a fast time frame and were very detailed. They also were great but not pushy at making suggestions for me to find the perfect fit of animal to my brother. They are a wonderful help to the world!!!

Get the word out better about how saving our animals saves our children in the long run. We need them to survive too!

I could have had more money at the time to adopt more than one animal.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting people to realize why the animals we are saving are so important.

One thing I'd also say is that...

They are great all the way around!

I am extremely impressed with World Wildlife Fund. They function with high quality on so many levels - they have fantastic marketing and innovative events (such as EarthHour)to create awareness, they are donor responsible (they communicate well with their donors), and they are completely on target with their activities which match their mission. Their commitment to helping our planet is huge!

I became a member after watching the movie, the 11th Hour, a documentary by Leonardo Dicaprio. WWF had nothing to do with this film, but that film opened my eyes to what's going on in this world. I did some research and wanted to try and help and WWF caught my attention. I've been honored to donate 16 dollars every month for the past 2 years and wearing my WWF shirt with pride. I get many looks when shopping with my WWF bags, and know people care. As a college student, working to pay bills and to support my 2 cats, it's hard to come up with enough money every month. But I know with WWF, and where my money goes to them, that I could never take away my donation every month, even if I was near broke. I love getting newsletters every week, and being a facebook fan keeps me up to date with WWF and their research. I'm 22, and I've been a WWF supporter for 2 years now, and will continue throughout my lifetime. I owe a lot to WWF for what they have done and are pursuing to do.

Getting the name out there and walking around Pittsburgh with my WWF shirt and WWF grocery bags.

the shop was cheaper. I want to wear as much WWF clothing as possible, but it costs 50 dollars just to get a hat.
