WWF works to conserve 19 of the world's most important ecosystems for the benefit of both the species and people who live there. We protect wildlife, preserve habitats and empower people to conserve resources while improving their livelihoods. We do this by partnering with governments, scientists and local communities to establish and manage protected areas, reduce threats such as poaching and habitat conversion, and influence national and local policies to improve biodiversity on the ground.
WWF partners with corporations, government agencies, NGOs, universities and research institutes to reduce the impact of the production and trade of commodities that most affect our conservation priorities. Our goal is to measurably reduce the most significant impacts of individual actors as well as entire industries.
WWF educates the American public through our Marketing and Public Relations Departments. We create and implement public relations programs, including events and earned media activities, to support WWF's mission and programs. Our Public Service announcements educate the mass market about our mission through print and broadcast media and we design and distribute communication materials to educate our supporters on overall mission, core programs, and results.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements in the past year?
Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).SOURCE: Self-reported by organization
