World Wildlife Fund is coming to Atlanta!

 

Fueled by your support, WWF is helping to end wildlife trafficking and human-wildlife conflict—two of the biggest threats to endangered species around the world. Our innovative work protects tigers, elephants, pangolins and many other species—and supports communities who depend on healthy wildlife and ecosystems to survive. Join World Wildlife Fund and hear from Nilanga Jayasinghe, Senior Program Officer, Asian Species; and Giavanna Grein, Senior Program Officer, Wildlife Crime & TRAFFIC, to learn how these threats are intricately connected and what WWF is doing to address them holistically to create a brighter future for wildlife and people the world over.
