Make a donation in your Will

Leave a Legacy

No matter how large or small, when you make a donation in your Will, you are providing our wildlife a voice for the future. You are giving WWF the power to always be there, speaking up for nature and ensuring its security, now and for generations to come.

The power of your Bequest

1. Your legacy can protect the forests of Borneo, the only place on Earth where orang-utans, pygmy elephants, rhinos and clouded leopards share the forest.

2. Your legacy can support the ambitious global plan to double wild tiger numbers reversing the tiger’s decline to extinction.

3. Your legacy can create a national system of marine parks to give Australia’s ocean wildlife unparalleled protection from harm.

4. Your legacy can recover endangered wildlife in Australia, some of which are found nowhere else in the world.
