Description

Since 1992, WWF's Arctic Programme has been working with partners across the Arctic to combat threats to the Arctic and to preserve its rich biodiversity in a sustainable way. There are offices in seven countries: Canada, Greenland (Denmark), Finland, Norway, Sweden, Russia and the United States, where they work with governments, businesses and people with the goals of preserving the Arctic's rich biodiversity, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and reducing pollution and wasteful consumption.
