Help protect our most precious species & places

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. 

Only 3,890 tigers exist in the wild. The destruction of forest habitat has threatened orangutan survival. Six out of the world’s seven species of marine turtle live in Australia's waters and are listed nationally as either endangered or vulnerable.

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.

  • could help WWF reduce illegal poaching and trade of live tigers and tiger parts
  • could help WWF create reforested wildlife corridors for pygmy elephants to roam freely
  • could help WWF fund patrols to monitor Borneo’s orang-utan population
  • could help WWF extend Indigenous partners' capacity to monitor and protect marine turtles

It's the perfect gift - with a cuddly toy of your choice and special adoption gift pack including adoption certificate and stunning animal portrait. 

You can choose for this gift pack to be sent directly to the recipient or you can receive it to give to them yourself. 


  • Conserve the giant pandas wild home and food supply by protecting 3 million hectares of forest 
  • Double wild tiger numbers by 2022 – one of the most important global conservation projects ever undertaken
  • Campaign to secure Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) so turtles and other marine species can feed and breed in safety
  • Protect orang-utans and Borneo pygmy elephants by creating a 220,000 square km network of protected areas and sustainably managed forests in the Heart of Borneo

Why do I support WWF? Because they make a difference. Individually we have limited reach and power, but as a group we have much more - with WWF we can change things in the world because we are pulling together. Thank goodness for movements like WWF.
