WWF started in 1961
Since then has worked towards the protection of endangered animals and their habitats.
By conserving the ecosystems and environments that animals rely on, the WWF has helped to bring many species back from the brink of extinction.
Using their scientific knowledge and expertise, along with the support of their donors, the WWF wants to protect 19 of the world's most important natural places by 2020.
This includes tropical rainforests and coral reefs, which in turn will protect some of our most iconic animals living in these fragile environments.
