WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.

The WWF Endangered Seas Programme works in more than 40 countries at a range of levels - from local communities through regional authorities and industry, to national governments and international conventions.

WWF's endangered Seas Programme is working to restore the balance in the use of our marine environments - by stopping overfishing and working to establish networks of well managed marine protected areas covering 10% of the world’s oceans.
