"These three words – believe in better  are a balm against the constant barrage of negativity we face from all directions. They are a candid, uplifting reminder of the value of believing in something good."

- Dr Morné du Plessis | CEO WWF South Africa

At WWF South Africa, this is what we do. For more than 55 years, our science-based work in South Africa has put people and nature first, improving the lives and livelihoods of South Africans and taking care of the environment as the stories on this page show.
