CeHuNews 122/03


In Italy, WWF was founded in 1966. Today it has more than 300.000 members, and has become the biggest environmental association of our country. WWF manages 132 protected areas called "Oasi" and other natural reserves.
WWF is present in Italy through a national office, a network of 19 regional offices and 230 local divisions, and works with a large number of volunteers. It organises nation-wide campaigns to save and protect endangered Italian species, in particular the wolf, the otter, cetaceans (dolphins), the bear of the Alps, and the seals of the Mediterranean.
Other campaigns raise awareness of the need for the protection of the environments, from freshwater habitats, and the Mediterranean Sea to temperate forests and important wetlands.
WWF also carries out specific environmental education programs in Italian schools.
It further is engaged in lobbying activities and exerts pressure on institutions to obtain effective laws ( i.e. the law regulating the creation of National Parks, lobbying for application of the Kyoto Protocol, pressurising the government for the ratification of the Washington Convention on the trade in endangered species).
In 2002 WWF Italy will work on 4 priority themes: Forests, Oceans and Coasts, Fresh Water Ecosystems and endangered Species, and will also promote WWF's global Climate Change campaign for the reduction of the emissions of greenhouse gases.
Furthermore WWF Italy is actively working on a regional scale for the protection of the Mediterranean and Alpine ecoregions through the development of trans-national conservation projects.
WWF Italy is funded through the membership fees of its 300,000 members, through donations and through planned gifts (wills and testaments).
For 30 years thousand of kids, young people and adults have been participating enthusiastically in WWF's holiday camps. In every season, and in every region they represent an alternative to the traditional holiday, offering the possibility to discover nature, to get to know different cultures, to meet people with a sensible approach towards the environment. WWF offers adventure camps for children and young people aged from 6 to 14 and from 15 to 17, nature holidays for adults and families and voluntary camps in Italy or abroad.
