What we do

Climate change program

 

It's nearly impossible to overstate the threat of climate change. Greenhouse gas emissions are rising more rapidly than predicted and the world is warming more quickly in response. 
Global warming will have catastrophic effects such as accelerating sea level rise, droughts, floods, storms and heat waves. These will impact some of the world's poorest and most vulnerable people, disrupting food production, and threatening vitally important species, habitats and ecosystems. 
Despite compelling scientific evidence, governments and businesses have responded with painful slowness. Even if countries fulfill all current mitigation pledges, the world will still face between 2.6 and 4 oC of warming.
As we work to reduce emissions, we must simultaneously begin to adapt to the increasing impacts of climate change.

It's nearly impossible to overstate the threat of climate change. Greenhouse gas emissions are rising more rapidly than predicted and the world is warming more quickly in response. WWF works on reducing the emission and to help adapting the increasing impacts of climate change.

Forest program

WWF supports the introduction of new (continuous cover) forest management methods in Hungary, creation of unmanaged forest zones and restauration of valuable natural forests especially on lowlands. Also we support the return of large forest carnivores, such as lynx, wolf and bear. Our tools are lobby work, field projects and raising awareness.

Freshwater program

Freshwater is the source of life. It’s what makes Earth unique in the known universe. It’s also a resource under threat. Just 3 per cent of water on the planet is freshwater, and only about 1 per cent is readily available for human use.

Species program

Our species protection programs involve field work in most cases: we conduct assessments and observation with our experts.

Other nature conservation

Introducing the The Traditional and Wild project! Collecting plants and herbs requires certain degree of knowledge, as the collector needs to be able to identify herbs correctly, and also know where to find them. This knowledge was often passed down from generation to generation.
