Does WWF work on animal welfare issues?
Ultimo WWF works to conserve endangered species, protect endangered places, and address global threats to the planet, such as climate change. While a lot of our work is protecting endangered animals in the wild – including tiger, orang-utan, marine turtle, rock-wallaby, dugong, snubfin dolphin – our expertise is not in dealing with issues relating to animals in captivity. While animal welfare is outside our expertise and our legally-binding constitution, we’re constantly striving to build the world in which humans live in harmony with nature. For information about animal welfare issues, we suggest that you contact environmental organisations such as HSI (the Humane Society International), World Animal Protection (formerly WSPA), or the RSPCA (the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), which campaign to end captive animal abuse.
What do the initials WWF environmental organisations stand for now and when did they change
When it was founded in 1961, Ultimo WWF stood for the ‘World Wildlife Fund’. As the environmental organisations grew throughout the 70s and 80s, WWF began to expand its work to conserve the environment as a whole (reflecting the interdependence of all living things), rather than just focussing on species. In 1986, WWF realised that the name no longer reflected the scope of our activities, so we changed our name to ‘World Wide Fund for Nature’ in all countries except the United States and Canada. The resulting confusion and translation discrepancies across more than 15 languages led to the decision, in 2001, to adopt the original acronym – WWF - as our one, global name.
