WWF Malaysia is a national
conservation trust that currently runs more than 75 projects
covering a diverse range of environmental protection and nature
conservation work in Malaysia.
Since 1972, WWF-Malaysia has worked on important conservation
projects, from saving endangered species such as tigers and turtles,
to protecting our highland forests, rivers and seas. WWF-Malaysia is
able to leverage upon conservation expertise worldwide as part of
WWF, the global conservation organisation.
Established as a national
conservation trust on 13 January 1972, WWF-Malaysia began as a
humble two person-organisation. Today, WWF-Malaysia has more than
100 people working – from Langkawi to Sabah.
WWF-Malaysia’s early work focused
on scientific research of wildlife and important natural habitats.
This later expanded to the management of protected areas. Today, WWF-Malaysia's
work covers the broader issues of the natural environment,
incorporating such aspects as policy work, environmental education,
public awareness and campaigns.

What does WWF stand for?
WWF stands for World Wide Fund For Nature. It was formerly
known as the World Wildlife Fund but adopted its current
name to show that it also works on other environmental
issues, and not just wildlife.
WWF Malaysia’s headquarters is
based in Petaling Jaya, Selangor in Peninsular Malaysia. WWF-Malaysia
also has programme offices in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and Kuching,
Sarawak. However, there are also members of staff working on various
projects that are based in other parts of the country.
