From the World Wildlife Federation:
For 50 years, WWF has been protecting the future of nature. The world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF’s unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.
From our start in 1961, WWF has worked toward the protection of endangered species. Our mission is to use the best conservation science available and work with people to find solutions to save the marvelous array of life on our planet.
WWF’s experience over nearly half a century has shown species conservation is vital — and it does work. Already, conservation efforts have brought many animals back from the brink of extinction. It has helped to not only conserve rich and varied ecosystems but also delivered real benefits to local people through new livelihood opportunities and sustainable development.
But our work is far from done. Destructive human activities have led to the current rate of species extinction, which is at least 100–1,000 times higher than the expected natural rate.
This has impacts far beyond the potential cultural loss of iconic species such as tigers, rhinos and whales. Species and the ecosystems they are part of provide essential goods and services that make human life possible and contribute enormously to our health and well-being — breathable air, clean water, food, fibers, building materials, medicines, energy, fertile soils, climate regulation, transport, and recreational and spiritual values.
Our conservation efforts are directed towards flagship species, iconic animals that provide a focus for raising awareness and stimulating action and funding for broader conservation efforts in our priority places; and footprint-impacted species whose populations are primarily threatened because of unsustainable hunting, logging or fishing.
By 2020 WWF will conserve 19 of the world’s most important natural places and significantly change global markets to protect the future of nature and endangered wildlife.
Go see a most amazing animal exhibit located in Myrtle Beach. T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station is a wildlife exhibit and living tiger museum with all proceeds benefiting the rarest tiger in the world, the Golden Tabby tiger. It is located at the complex dockside by one of the pedestrian bridges and is open to visitors of all ages. The attraction is usually open March and October and visitors are advised to check hours of operation before heading to the attraction.
The Wild Encounter Tour is a guided walk through a beautiful 50 acre preserve, which is taken in the company of professional photographers taking photos and video footage to capture the experience for the guests. Visitors can interact with apes, orangutans, and chimpanzees, watch tigers swim, observe gray wolves, fly trained falcons and again have the chance to sit small cubs on their laps. In addition to this the tour comes across Bubbles the four ton African elephant and the Liger, which is a cross between a lion and a tiger and is the largest cat in the world.
