Last March 15, WWF-Philippines Marine Conservation Steward Luis Manzano was the latest WWF Ambassador who became a fundraiser for an hour. Held in Glorietta 3 Makati, this campaign is aimed at spreading awareness on pressing environmental issues and to put the Individual Donor Programme (IDP) in the spotlight.

Everyone can directly contribute in the environment and livelihood projects of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines through the Individual Donor Programme. Simply approach WWF booths in selected malls, or by simply visiting the WWF-Philippine website. With one-time and recurring donations, everyone is able to do their part in building a world where humans and nature thrive.

Any amount is welcome to support WWF-Philippines’ programs involving food and water security, species conservation, and climate and energy. These donations are directed to conservation projects in key sites across the Philippines; promoting clean sources of renewable energy, preparing communities in facing worsening climate change impacts, and educating the youth through environmental education drives.

A long-time diver and certified lover of the seas, Luis Manzano amplifies the organization’s projects, campaigns, and advocates through his wide network and social media reach.

Founded in 1996, WWF-Philippines spearheads campaigns and solutions to help the country combat worsening climate change, give communities the means for an alternative livelihood, conserve species, secure food and water sources, and recently, transform lives by providing sustainable livelihood programs in communities.

As of today, WWF-Philippines handles 13 project sites including the Tubbataha Reefs and Cagayancillo in Palawan, Donsol in Sorsogon, Mt. Iglit-Baco Mountain Range and Apo Reef in Mindoro, Ipo Watershed in Bulacan, and Hamilo Coast in Batangas. WWF-Philippines also conducts climate studies in 16 key cities around the country.
