On a mission to stop the degradation of Viet Nam’s natural environment
and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.
World Wide Fund for Nature in Viet Nam (WWF-Viet Nam) is recognised as the leading conservation organisation in the country, bringing solutions and support to the government and other key players to meet the country’s development challenges.
Viet Nam lies in the Greater Mekong region, one of the most biologically diverse areas on the planet. The rich natural resources support the livelihoods and diverse well-being of millions of people in mainland South East Asia. WWF Viet Nam is working to conserve the region’s biodiversity and secure, sustainable future for its people.
Home to 16% of the world's flora and fauna species, Viet Nam has an equally diverse landscape of mountain ranges, tropical rainforests, mangroves, dry forests, coasts, oceans, rivers and lakes. Its landscapes have been identified as belonging to part of the 200 Global ecoregions - the world’s most biologically important areas to conserve for future generations.
However, many species are threatened or endangered due to habitat loss, poorly planned infrastructure, climate change, unsustainable farming methods and poaching. Therefore conservation education, policy change and cooperation on a local and corporate level are crucial.
