I’ve always had an amazing appreciation for wildlife, but after a week in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, it’s definitely grown. I’m completely amazed by how many species I was able to experience that were at one point on the brink of extinction. While the federal government has done a fantastic job in that particular situation, they’re not able to act in the same way across the world. That’s where organizations like World Wildlife Fund come in. WWF is a Washington, DC non-profit that “has been protecting the future of nature” for the last 50 years. They work in 100 countries and have more than 5 million members across the world. The organization’s vision is “to build a future in which people live in harmony with nature.” That’s a tall task considering our history, but there are certainly signs of hope.
While I still have some ill will towards World Wildlife Fund for the whole WWF trademark dispute (and I don’t even like professional wrestling–check out WWE jobs), I generally like what they’re doing. WWF’s six major areas of focus are Protect Species, Conserve Places, Transform Businesses, Tackle Climate Change, Work with Communities, and Develop Science-based Solutions. What I think is most impressive, though, is that at WWF’s massive size they’re still committing 85% of their expenses towards programming. That makes you think that they have a realistic shot at their goal to “conserve 15 of the world’s most ecologically important regions” by 2020. If you want to help them accomplish that, take a look at World Wildlife Fund’s Jobs page. Right now there are some interesting positions posted including:
If you love wildlife, it’d be hard to pass up a career with World Wildlife Fund.
