WWF Tiger Study Finds Habitat Shrinking
WWF collaborated with other organizations on the most comprehensive scientific study of tiger habitats ever done. The study finds that tigers reside in 40 percent less habitat than they were thought to a decade ago. But large-scale conservation efforts have largely succeeded in some areas, raising hopes that similar efforts could be replicated. WWF continues to establish protected areas and is working to reduce - and ultimately, eliminate - the trade in tiger parts and products.

    WWF Works with Fishermen to Eliminate Wasteful Bycatch Hundreds of thousands of marine turtles die annually as unwanted bycatch, the incidental capture of "non-target species." Caught in the nets, hooks, and lines of the world's fisheries, bycatch is the single most important threat to these ancient mariners. Moreover, hundreds of thousands of dolphins, small whales, and seabirds die each year from entanglement in fishing nets, making bycatch their largest cause of mortality and pushing several species to the verge of extinction. In the largest marine conservation project ever in the Eastern Tropical Pacific, WWF and its partners are working with with fishermen, exporters, and fisheries agencies to test and promote new equipment and best fishing practices to reduce the bycatch.

    Oppose a Damaging Oceans Bill
    Our planet's oceans are in trouble and the plant and animal life they sustain are being threatened. Overfishing, marine habitat destruction, coastal development, global warming, and pollution are pushing our ocean ecosystems to the brink of collapse. WWF uses market incentives to promote responsible fishing and works with government and other conservation partners to advance policies that will sustain the vital and diverse wildlife and habitats that constitute the ocean's web of life. Ask Congress to help WWF's efforts by reauthorizing and strengthening the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the primary law governing fishing in U.S. ocean waters.
