WWF Celebrates 50th Anniversary with Hope




World Wildlife Fund is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year by posting a progressive step of environmental awareness and action on its website each week. Collectively titled 50 Reasons for Hope, they demonstrate that conservation makes a real difference and that, working together, we can protect the future of our planet.

By the end of the year, the 50 Reasons for Hope will give a broad, rich and playful understanding of WWF and a hopeful vision for the future—a vision that everyone can help make a reality.
