Where we work
Since 1992, WWF's Arctic Programme has focused on conservation across the circumpolar world.
The Last Ice Area
One place is expected to retain its summer sea ice when it's mostly melted in the rest of the Arctic: this is the Last Ice Area.
With its relatively warm ocean currents and high biodiversity, the Barents is one of Europe’s last large, clean and relatively undisturbed marine ecosystems.
Beaufort, Bering & Chukchi Seas
Wildlife doesn't recognize borders, and these seas shared by Canada, Russia and the United States are a perfect opportunity for Arctic collaboration.
WWF works to protect Finland's northern habitats and species like the Saimaa ringed seal and Lesser White-fronted Goose.
WWF's US office in Anchorage works on Arctic issues across Alaska, and on conservation challenges that cross borders.
