With its global network, no otherorganization is better positioned than WWFto bring about the changes that will berequired – at all levels – to build a trulysustainable future. But we can't do it alone.We urgently need leaders in government,business, and civil society to come forwardand play a role. I hope that we can dependon you; I know future generations will.Chief Emeka AnyaokuPresidentWWF International’’Species clingto life inthe fragileecosystem ofthe NamibDesert but forhow long?

Forging partnerships for big resultsIn October, we released our sixth LivingPlanet Report (page 12). Media aroundthe world carried the report’s messagethat we are seriously exceeding thecapacity of the Earth to support us.Wildlife populations around the globeare in decline, and the burden weimpose upon the planet is increasingrelentlessly. We are using up more andmore of our fresh water, forests, andfish stocks. Most of all, of course, weare changing the climate.Conservation is thus more urgent than ever.WWF is rising to the challenge by forgingpartnerships that can effect change on aglobal scale to save the Earth’s mostextraordinary habitats and to encourageconservation worldwide.‘‘Wildlife populationsaround the globe are indecline, and the burdenwe impose upon theplanet is increasingrelentlessly.’’This report highlights some of the ways inwhich we are working with diverse partnersto achieve large-scale impacts. Collaborationswith the government of Brazil, the WorldBank, and local communities in the Amazon,for example, have yielded the mostambitious protected-area project everundertaken (page 4). Cooperation betweenWWF and Unilever gave birth to the MarineStewardship Council (MSC) to create amarket for sustainable seafood, and WWF isnow working with fishermen, processors,and the world’s largest retailers to propelMSC into the mainstream (page 10).Partnerships like these are crucial forconserving the Earth’s biodiversity. They areequally crucial for the fight against poverty,beginning with achieving the United Nation’sMillennium Development Goals. In placeslike the Mara River of East Africa (page 6),aid agencies and community organizationsare vital partners in our efforts to helpconserve ecological resources that areessential for successful development.Ultimately, the future of all humanity, rich andpoor, depends upon finding ways to takebetter care of the ecosystems that supportlife on Earth, and on forging collaborationsthat can deliver big results. In this year, whenseveral of our colleagues gave their lives inthat cause, we are committed to redoublingour efforts. I hope the examples highlightedin this year’s Annual Review will inspire youto join us in our fight for a living planet.James P LeapeDirector GeneralWWF International1

one more degree.and damage may be irreversible“Further global warming of 1 C defines a criticalthreshold. Beyond that we will likely see changes thatmake Earth a different planet than the one we know,”says NASA’s Goddard Institute director and recipientof this year’s Duke of Edinburgh Conservation Medal*,Dr James Hansen.Today, there are hardly any among the world’spolitical, industrial, and media leaders who doubt thatclimate change is an urgent problem and that it islargely a man-made phenomenon. With each newstatistic the awareness of the looming crisisincreases. But CO2 emissions are still growing, and theworld is warming faster than at any time in the last12,000 years. The 1990s was the hottest decade in thepast thousand years .We can curb climate change – if we act now. If we beginto make the switch to clean energy today we can keepglobal warming below the danger threshold. The windowof opportunity is narrow, but experts tell us that if wemanage to turn the trend of global CO2 emissions in thenext ten to fifteen years, we can succeed. And everyonecan contribute – business people and investors,scientists and technicians, law makers and citizens.Mobilizing corporations forthe climateThe private sector can and must play a vital role in reducingCO2 emissions. The public wants to know what companiesare doing about climate change, or indeed whether theyhave an emissions-reduction plan at all.2*WWF’s highest honour, awarded for outstanding service to the environment.Arctic ice ismelting fasterthan it isbeing formed.

‘‘The hottest decade in thepast thousand years.’’Good for businessWWF has shown that there are great opportunities forbusinesses to improve their standing and their bottom lineby taking action to cut CO2 emissions. Making better useof resources and creating more efficient products arebecoming part of normal business practices. It was toencourage these responsible, forward-thinking companiesthat WWF’s Climate Savers programme was developed.What exactly is Climate Savers?Climate Savers is a cutting-edge programme between WWFand businesses aimed at fighting climate change. Agreedtargets must go much further than previous plans andshould place the company as a sector leader in greenhousegas emission control. To date, a dozen companies havejoined the fight, including Sony, Tetra Pak, and Lafarge.How green is that freezer?Consumers have many things to take into considerationwhen purchasing a new appliance. While it is relatively easyto compare prices, features, and appearances of similarproducts, it is more difficult to find reliable and objectiveinformation on their energy efficiency.To counter this, WWF and a group of partner organizationsrecently launched TOPTEN, an online search tool that givespotential purchasers in ten European countries theopportunity to compare the energy efficiency of consumergoods such as washing machines, fridges and freezers, TVsets, computers, and cars.To curb globalwarming wemust switch toclean energysuch as wind.Witness to thechanging climateChanging weather patterns arealready hitting eastern Africa,where the 2006 UN Conferenceon Climate Change took place.A WWF survey confirmed thataverage temperatures in Kenyahave risen by 1.3 C andthat although overall rainfallhas increased, it is moreunpredictable. Juma NjungeMacharia from Murungaru,a village just west of Nairobi,addressed the conference,saying: “When I was young therainy season here started inmid-April, but it has now shiftedto June – when it used to end.Rainfall has become unreliableand makes it more challengingto plan any farming activities. Ihope that governments will agreeto a way to stop [emissions].”TOPTEN helps to show how energy consumption contributesto climate change and indicates what individuals can do toreduce their impact on the environment. It also informsretailers about which products to choose, and serves as anincentive to persuade manufacturers to improve the energyefficiency of their products. www.topten.infoJuma Njunge Macharia, one of WWF’s“Climate Witnesses”.3

the breath of lifeIt is impossible to overestimate the contribution madeby the world’s forests to the well-being of the planet.Forests form a complex and extraordinarily diverseecosystem – a fragile, intricate, interdependent webmade up of micro-organisms, soils, insects, animalsand flowers, as well as the trees themselves. Forestsare the Earth’s purifiers, “breathing” in much of theexcess CO2 we pump into the atmosphere andexhaling the oxygen upon which all life depends. Theyprovide water, food, fuel, shelter, medicines, spiritualsustenance, and countless other valuable services.Yet despite their value, over 50 per cent of the world’soriginal forests have already gone and they continueto disappear at a rate of about 13 million hectares ayear. At WWF, we believe we can avert this disasterthrough a mix of protection, restoration, responsibleforestry, and by addressing consumption issues. TheForest Stewardship Council (FSC) – a certificationsystem that WWF helped set up in 1994 to ensurewood and wood products come from forests that aresustainably managed – now has nearly 80 millionhectares of certified forests and around 20,000FSC-labelled products on sale worldwide.Top: On the ground in Brazil, WWFstaff are helping ARPA deliver on itscommitment to protect vast areas ofAmazonian forest.Bottom: FSC certification guarantees thatwood – such as this quinilla tree in Peru –has been sustainably harvested.Right: Forests such as the Amazonrainforest “breathe in” much of our excessCO2 and exude it as life-giving oxygen.4

Transforming conservation:the AmazonKeeping the Heart ofBorneo beatingA momentous undertaking is under way to transformconservation in Brazil. The Amazon Region ProtectedAreas (ARPA) programme aims to ensure comprehensiveprotection of 50 million hectares, or 12 per cent of theBrazilian Amazon – an area about twice the size of theUnited Kingdom, and 50 per cent more than the USNational Park System. Through its geographic scope andfinancial ambitions, the ARPA programme redefinesplace-based conservation.The “Heart of Borneo” is one of the last major tropicalrainforests in Southeast Asia and one of the mostbiologically diverse habitats on Earth. This predominantlymountainous area, shared by Brunei, Indonesia, andMalaysia, is the source of the island’s major rivers. Butdespite its importance, plans were announced in July 2005to create the “world’s biggest oil palm plantation”, whichwould effectively rip the forest heart out of Borneo.Lobbying at the highest levelsPartners in sustainable developmentOver a ten-year period, the programme, developed by thegovernment of Brazil in partnership with WWF and otherstakeholders, will create and support a system of protectedareas and reserves where natural resources are sustainablymanaged. A trust fund will generate sufficient incometo support effective management of these areas over thelong term.Since its formation in 2003, the programme has set worldclass standards for innovation and cooperation involvingmultiple sectors of society, and has produced outstandingconservation results ahead of schedule. ARPA is playing akey role in ensuring that future development in the Amazonregion can take place on a solid environmental footing.First resultsBy the end of 2006, less than four years since its inception,ARPA has created over 23.5 million hectares of new parksand reserves, among them the Tumucumaque MountainsNational Park. Conceived by WWF and the Brazilian Instituteof Environment and Renewable Natural Resources, this 3.9million-hectare park – roughly the size of Switzerland – is theworld's largest tropical forest national park and home toseveral threatened species, including jaguars, macaws, andharpy eagles.WWF focused on finding a solution, even arranging a privatemeeting between WWF Director General James Leape andIndonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. Much ofthe intended land was in fact too steep, high, and infertile foroil palm, but a WWF study revealed a viable alternative: anarea three times greater than the proposed plantation whichwas not only more suitable but also considered “idle land”.In Borneo, illegal loggingis pushing many speciesto the brink.By working together with eight government ministries, thepalm oil sector, and other NGOs, we succeeded in haltingthis destructive 1.8 million-hectare project before forestclearing could begin. In March 2006, the launch byIndonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei of the Heart of Borneoinitiative at the meeting of the UN Convention on BiologicalDiversity confirmed the Indonesian government’s commitmentto the conservation and sustainable development of the area– another example of how presenting “win-win” solutions topolitical and commercial interests can bring tangible resultswhere confrontation alone is likely to fail.‘‘By the end of 2006, less than four yearssince its inception, ARPA has createdover 23.5 million hectares of new parksand reserves.’’5

facing a water crisisWater is as essential as the air we breathe. Without it,there is no life. Yet although more than 70 per cent of ourblue planet is covered by water, less than 3 per cent of itis fresh water, and much of that is locked up in glaciers,snowcaps, and permafrost, leaving only a tiny fractionsuitable and available for human use – for drinking,sanitation, hydro-electricity, industry, inland transport,fishing, and growing crops. Of these, agriculture usesby far the most – almost two-thirds. With a quarter ofthe population facing a shortage, the world is alreadyexperiencing a severe and growing water crisis that ismirrored by the steep decline in freshwater ecosystems.Clearly something has to be done and one of the firststeps is to curb agriculture’s thirst for water.Quenching “thirsty” cropsIn the past two years, WWF has worked closely with leadingmultinational companies, NGOs, and research institutes tochange the way that thirsty crops, especially cotton, rice,and sugar, are grown. The aim is to introduce better farmingpractices that reduce the environmental and social impactsof cultivation, while also increasing farm income.More cotton for less It is ironic that cotton, a crop that needs a lot of water, ismostly grown in hot, semi-arid countries where water is ata premium. One such country is Pakistan, where WWF hasan ongoing programme to encourage farmers to conservewater by adopting “bed and furrow” irrigation in combinationwith integrated pest management techniques.Results of these efforts over the last five years demonstrate thatmore cotton can be grown using up to 30 per cent less water,up to 25 per cent less chemical fertilizer, and less than half the6Growing rice:traditionalfarmingmethods requirevast quantitiesof fresh water.pesticide – while putting more money into farmers’ pockets. Thisnot only reduces the crop’s dependence on water, but also helpsstabilize the surrounding ecosystem by maintaining the area’snatural flows, benefiting species like the Indus River dolphin.Similar results can be gained when other major crops such assugar cane and wheat are raised using improved crop practices.Managing water for peopleand natureEach year the Mara-Serengeti region in Africa experiencesone of nature’s grandest spectacles. In April and May, morethan 1 million wildebeest, over 200,000 zebras, and about400,000 Thomson gazelles migrate westward from the NdutuPlain of Tanzania in search of food and the region’s most fragileresource, water. One of the few reliable sources they find is theMara River, the only perennial river in the region. In recentyears, however, the Mara has been subject to increasingdemands from agriculture, mining industries, and a growinghuman population, as well as deforestation in its headwaters.Significant reduction in flow and quality are already evident,especially during the dry season.GLOWS to the rescueTo counter the problem, WWF is working with the NorwegianAgency for Development Cooperation (NORAD) and the GlobalWater for Sustainability (GLOWS) programme, a consortiumled by the Florida International University and backed by theUS Agency for International Development, to help localcommunities around the Masai Mara and Serengeti reservesin Kenya and Tanzania to set up systems for monitoring waterquality and quantity, and develop ways to finance sustainableriver conservation for both people and nature. Similar GLOWSintegrated water resource-management initiatives are under wayin Latin America and India, with more to follow in coming years.Rice factsHalf the world depends on rice,and more than 90 per cent of it isgrown in Asia. Traditional farmingneeds 3,000 to 5,000 litres ofwater to produce a kilo of rice.A typical adult in Southeast Asiaconsumes 160 kilos of rice ayear, making a yearly waterrequirement of at least 500,000litres per person! By introducingthe “System of RiceIntensification” (SRI), more ricecan be grown per litre. Resultsfrom SRI pilot projects in India,supported by WWF, have shownsubstantial increases in cropyields – and farmer incomes –while using about 30 per centless water.

extinction:the ultimate challengeThere is a species extinction crisis. This year’sIUCN Red List includes 16,118 species known to bethreatened, up by over 5,500 in just ten years. Threatsto biodiversity are at an all-time high, caused bydetrimental human activities across the globe. Inpractical terms, species loss means a less healthyand resilient environment, less food, fewer fish inthe sea, fewer plants and animals in the forests, lessfresh water and, in the long term, less income forcommunities. If we lose our species, we lose thefundamental building blocks that keep our planet aliveand sustain us. From that, there is no way back. Andthat is bad news for species, bad news for the planet,and bad news for people.Learning to live with wildlifeAs human populations expand ever further into naturalhabitats, people and animals are increasingly coming intoconflict over living space and food. With dwindling naturalfood resources available, wild animals in many areas areforced to turn to human-owned alternatives. As a result,people lose their crops, livestock, property, and sometimestheir lives. The animals, many of which are alreadythreatened or endangered, are often killed in retaliation or toprevent future encounters. Human-wildlife conflict is on therise, increasingly affecting different species, peoples, andindustries across the planet.8Fighting backfrom extinctionRhinos are one of WWF’s“flagship” species: by focusing ontheir conservation, many otherspecies which share their habitatsmay also benefit. There are fiverhino species in Asia and Africa:Javan rhinos are the rarest andare critically endangered.Estimates indicate only 28 to 56of them in Indonesia, with anothereight in Vietnam. Only about 300Sumatran rhinos are thought tosurvive, though their cousins theIndian rhino are thriving insanctuaries, with about 2,400known individuals. In Africa thenorthern white rhino population isdown to under ten, though theirsouthern white relatives numberover 14,000. Black rhinos are alsogradually increasing and currentlynumber around 3,700 individuals.

Active involvementWWF and its partner organizations work around theworld with local communities to reduce human-wildlifeconflict. With solutions in place, communities havethe opportunity to value and benefit from theirwildlife, and in their turn, often become enthusiasticconservationists themselves.Baby boom for rare rhinosIn an all too rare piece of positive news, evidencehas been found of four Javan rhinos born recently inIndonesia – a surprising baby boom for a species thatmay be reduced to fewer than 60 individuals worldwide(see box, left). Signs of the rhino calves were discoveredin Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon National Park by a team ofbiologists, including park rangers and WWF staff.They are the first known births for the Javan rhinos inthree years.Above: Conflictbetween humansand wildlife suchas bears andtigers can bereduced bycreating corridorsto allow themaccess to food andshelter.“Javan rhinos are probably the rarest large mammalspecies in the world and they are on the very brink ofextinction,” said Arman Malolongan, Director Generalof Forest Protection and Nature Conservation atIndonesia’s Ministry of Forestry. “To discover that thispopulation is breeding, and even slowly growing, givesus hope for the species’ future.”Tigers, elephants,bears, wolves and peopleAmong the many ways that WWFand its various partners try toresolve human-wildlife conflict are: Creating new protected areas,improving management ofexisting ones, and creatingcorridors to allow elephants,tigers, bears, and other wildlifeaccess to food and shelter Using innovative solutions suchas chilli and tobacco-baseddeterrents to protect cropsfrom hungry elephants in Africaand India Using teams of domesticelephants to chase wild onesout of oil palm plantations inIndonesia and communityfarmland in India Creating different livelihoodopportunities for communities Improving livestockmanagement to reducepredation by tigers or snowleopards in India, Malaysia,Mongolia, and PakistanThrough the work of WWF and the Ujung KulonNational Park Authority, effective law enforcement hasresulted in the complete elimination of rhino poachingin the park since the early 1990s.Elephants can destroy a year’s crop in onenight. WWF works with local peopleto identify practical solutions to repelwildlife from village plots.9

safeguarding the oceansOnce considered inexhaustible, our oceans are now in astate of global crisis as more and more people competefor fewer and fewer fish. Overfishing threatens coastalcommunities and the food security of the millions whorely on marine fish as an important source of protein.More than 70 per cent of the world’s commercial marinefish stocks are either fully exploited, overfished, orrecovering from overfishing. Yet the solutions are in ourhands, because what we buy for dinner tonight candetermine whether tomorrow’s generations will continueto enjoy the oceans’ riches. Or not.Getting fisheries in balance toprotect speciesNot everything caught in a fishing net makes it to the table.Every day millions of creatures are caught in equipmentintended for other species. Modern fishing gear, intensivelydeployed and extremely powerful, is very efficient atcatching fish – as well as anything else in its path. This“incidental” catch is called bycatch. All types of marine life,including whales, dolphins, sharks, seabirds, starfish, crabs,and turtles are killed as bycatch. Every year, for example,over 300,000 whales, dolphins, and porpoises die in fishingnets, and over a quarter of a million threatened marineturtles are caught on longline hooks.Turning the tideIt is a monumental challenge, but we can turn the tide bypersuading major seafood buyers to demand change, bydemonstrating the viability of alternative fishing technology,and by encouraging fleet owners to pioneer differentapproaches, while lobbying hard for regulatory reforms.Already our “Smart Gear” competition rewards innovativethinking from all over the world, with a US 25,000 award for10ideas such as using strong magnets to repel sharks fromlongline hooks, or weighting hooks to sit at a depth of 120m,far below endangered turtles and albatross. And a WWFsponsored programme in Ecuador has seen a 90 per centreduction of marine turtle bycatch by replacing traditional “J”shaped longline hooks with specially designed circle hooks.A bycatch black listMore MSC-certified seafood more sustainable fish 9 species of dolphins and porpoises arelikely to disappear in the next decadethrough entanglement in lines and nets.The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), co-founded by WWFin 1997, rewards sustainable and well-managed fisheries withtheir distinctive blue eco-label. By 2006, 21 fisheries had beencertified against the MSC’s standards and labelled to prove it.A further 30 are undergoing assessment. Together theyaccount for more than 6 per cent of global seafood catch andcover some of the world’s major fisheries. To date, over 100major seafood buyers have pledged to purchase MSC-certifiedseafood products, including large supermarket chains inFrance, Germany, Switzerland, and the UK. Overall, there arecurrently around 450 MSC-labelled fish products on sale in 26countries – ranging from fresh, frozen, smoked, and cannedfish to fish oil dietary supplements. Longline fisheries account for the captureof more than 250,000 loggerhead andleatherback marine turtles each year.World’s largest retailer sets a green precedentWith an annual turnover larger than many nations'economies, Wal-Mart serves roughly 100 million peopleeach week. Now the global retail giant has committed tosourcing all fresh and frozen products in North Americanstores from MSC-certified fisheries within five years. Withguidance from WWF and partners, this decision to raise thebar for fish suppliers is just one example of Wal-Mart’senvironmental commitment, and illustrates the power ofbusiness to influence widespread change. One shark dies for every two swordfishthat are caught in illegal Moroccandriftnets – around 100,000 sharks a year. 22 species of seabirds, including 17 ofthe 21 species of albatross, are decliningmainly because of longline fishing.Left: Fishermenin Mauritaniaoften findthemselvescompetingagainstindustrialtrawlers for fish.

Progressmust be made on many fronts, from reversing our overharvesting of fish to controlling our use of fresh water. Thereport also makes it clear that first and foremost we mustchange the way in which we generate and use energy. Ourreliance on fossil fuels, and the climate-changing emissionsthat result, now makes up 48 per cent – almost half – of ourglobal footprint.198019902000 03Fig. 2 Living Planet Index 1970 – 20031.81.61.4Index (1970 1.0)The Living Planet Report 2006*, published in October, isWWF’s biennial update on the health of the natural worldand our impact on it. This latest edition confirms that we areusing the planet’s resources faster than they can berenewed. Humanity’s “ecological footprint” (Fig.1) – ourimpact upon the planet – has more than tripled since 1961,and now exceeds the world’s ability to regenerate by about25 per cent. The report also tells us that this relentlesspressure is having predictable consequences on biodiversity:the Living Planet Index (Fig.2), which tracks the populationsof 1,300 vertebrate species, shows a decline of more than30 per cent since 1970.1970The Ecological Footprint measures humanity’s demand on thebiosphere. It includes all the cropland, grazing land, forest andfishing grounds required to produce the food, fibre, and timberwe consume, to absorb the wastes emitted in generating theenergy we use, and to provide space for our infrastructure. In2003, demand exceeded supply by 25%.1.21.00.80.60.40.2019601970198019902000 03Trends in populations of terrestrial, marine, and freshwatervertebrate species show a decline of more than 30% since 1970.12*Living Planet Report 2006: http://www.panda.org/livingplanet

meeting thefunding challengeLong-term financial support is always one of WWF’sgreatest challenges and we are especially grateful toour loyal donors who each year enable us to keep ourmany vital programmes going.The Oak Foundation: restoring Europe’s fisheriesEuropean countries are legally committed to managing theirfisheries sustainably. Despite this, fish stocks are stilldeclining in European waters. Today the adults of severalspecies number just 10 per cent of what they were 30 yearsago. The Oak Foundation’s substantial financial support ishelping WWF to develop a holistic management plan for therecovery of Europe’s marine ecosystems by strengtheningand implementing the reformed EU Common Fisheries Policy.The MAVA Foundation: a blueprint for actionWWF and another of its partners, the MAVA Foundation, aimto change the way governments protect biodiversity. Usingthe work programme of the Convention on BiologicalDiversity (CBD) as a blueprint for action, WWF is engagingscientists, government officials, NGOs, local authorities, andbusiness people to set up well-managed networks ofprotected areas in some 25 countries. The programme, tobe implemented over five years, involves trans-boundaryplanning that WWF is uniquely placed to promote. Throughthis work, we hope to influence the 188 Parties to theConvention and accelerate their conservation actions.From kids to corporations,we thank you!Almost 5 million supporters, ranging fromschool children to corporations andfoundations, make financial or in-kindcontributions that add up to around70 per cent of WWF’s global yearly income.From kids to corporations, we thank you!We thank every one of them and deeplyappreciatesupportof our ranginggoals.More than 5theirmillionsupporters,from school children to corporations andInaddition tomakethosefinancialmentionedon the leftfoundations,or in-kindandonpages18and19,WWFcontributions that add up to around 70 perInternationalgratefulto: Fondationcent of WWF’sisglobalyearlyincome.
