What we do

The world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF’s unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.



There are many type of jobs associated with the WWF. Whether you are sitting behind a desk in Washington DC, or you are attending a meeting in Europe about the climate somewhere, everybody that works for the WWF knows that they are making a difference. WWF is also what some call an equak oppurtunity employer which means that they encourage women, men, and minorites to apply for a job.
