The Wildlife Conservation Society is an international conservation body founded in 1895 in New York, dedicated to saving wildlife and wild places. In its strategic vision to 2020 WCS aims to support the conservation of more than 50% of global biodiversity through work in 16 of the world’s most important terrestrial and marine regions spanning more than 40 countries, and to inspire broader global impacts through, for example, scientific research and public outreach.
WWF is a global network of offices working in over 100 countries. WWF advocates for the goal of zero net deforestation and degradation by 2020 globally and regionally, and thereby achieving zero net greenhouse gas emissions from these causes. Over the longer-term this far-reaching network of offices is working together to ensure the integrity of the world’s most important forests, including their benefits to human well-being, is enhanced and maintained. WWF-UK leads on the Trillion Trees partnership for the network and particularly supports work in the Amazon, East Africa and India, China and the eastern Himalayas.
BirdLife International is the world’s largest civil society nature conservation partnership, with 122 autonomous national organisations as BirdLife Partners in 120 countries worldwide and a total global reach of 10 million members and supporters. BirdLife’s Forests Programme prioritizes forests of global biodiversity significance, where Partners employ innovative, locally-designed management, financing and governance systems to conserve biodiversity, generate economic benefits and sustainable development, and combat climate change.
Trillion Trees has been initiated by Restore UK, which was established in 2001 as a grant-making charity to invest in the protection and restoration of Britain's natural habitat. This vision has since expanded to incorporate environmental and biodiversity issues globally.
