How we work
In the 19th century, Arctic foxes were a common sight in Norway and Sweden, but they were nearly exterminated by overhunting. WWF-Sweden is supporting work to grow and stabilize the Swedish Arctic fox population.
Supporting reindeer herders
WWF is working with Saami to explore ways of reducing future cumulative impacts of different pressures (like mining, wind power, forestry, tourism and large carnivores) on reindeer herding in Sweden.
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.
