Help protect our most precious species & places

The future of our wildlife depends on us. Orangutans are now critically endangered in Borneo. Tigers are on the brink of extinction. Just 1,500 Borneo pygmy elephants remain in the wild. It’s hard to imagine a world without tigers, turtles or orangutans in the wild. Sadly, that’s the way these precious endangered animals are heading. They are on the slide to extinction.


When you adopt, you will be helping to protect endangered animals. Your adoption will support WWF’s essential conservation work – protecting the habitat, preserving the food and ensuring the safety of threatened species locally and globally.


Adopt today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about endangered species through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly adopters. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for our planet.
