Humans are behind the current rate of species extinction, which is at least 100–1,000 times higher than nature intended.
Saving Leo is raising much needed funds to help slow and reverse this process by supporting a range of incredibly worthwhile projects around the globe. You can find out more about these projects by clicking the button below and following the links.
Here are some of the reasons why WWF gets Leo's support...
Protecting species contributes to a thriving, healthy planet.
Saving wildlife is at the core of WWF’s mission. Why? Because animal populations are disappearing at an alarming rate.
But even in the face of threats like poaching, habitat loss and overuse of natural resources, WWF is creating a better future for wildlife every day.
Protecting these species also contributes to a thriving, healthy planet for people’s health and well-being—from forests that slow climate change and filter water to oceans that provide more than one-sixth of the world’s food.
We protect wildlife because they inspire us. But we also focus our efforts on those species - like tigers, rhinos, whales and marine turtles - whose protection influences and supports the survival of other species or offers the opportunity to protect whole landscapes or marine areas.
This much is clear: we cannot afford to fail in our mission to save a living planet.
