How we work

Assessing shipping risk

As the Arctic sea ice diminishes, shipping through the Bering Strait region will increase. WWF is working with partners protect marine resources from the threat of shipwrecks and related oil spills, invasive species, ship strikes, and pollution.

Protecting America's fishbasket

WWF is working with partners to protect Bristol Bay’s unmatched salmon runs and biodiversity through science and advocacy.

Protecting polar bears across borders

WWF addresses conservation of polar bears at the local, national, and international levels. We support community initiatives such as polar bear patrols and contribute to planning and implementing range-wide conservation plans.

Reducing polar bear conflict in Alaska

Along the northern coast of Alaska, WWF supports several active polar bear patrols and education programs.
