OUR HISTORY

We are WWF. The World Wide Fund for Nature.

Founded in 1961 in Switzerland, WWF is one of the world’s most recognizable and respected independent conservation organisations.

BEGINNINGS

The history of WWF in Zambia started in 1962 on the Kafue Flats with the purchase of private land which was donated to the Government to create Lochinvar and Blue Lagoon National Parks. 

Since then WWF operated through a series of specific isolated projects including support to; anti-poaching, conservation education, community based natural resource management and wetlands conservation.

In 1991, we signed a memorandum of understanding  with the Government of the Reppublic of Zambia (GRZ) to create a coordinating office in Zambia. 

 
 

Our mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment.
