World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF International)

WWF International is dedicated to protecting the world's wildlife by directing its conservation efforts toward protecting endangered spaces and addressing global threats.

WWF continues to support and is actively involved within the Regional Seas programmes, for example the WWF Arctic Programme and the WWF-USA cooperates with the Wider Caribbean region in the SPAW (Specially Protected Areas and Wildlife) Protocol implementation and the Species list. WWF has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with UNEP through the Secretariat for the Nairobi Convention for the implementation of programmes in the marine and coastal areas of the Western Indian Ocean region.
