Dear Friend of WWF,

As we approach the end of 2008, we want to share with you some of our special accomplishments from this year:

Protecting core habitat for the endangered Siberian tiger with the establishment of Russia's Anyuiskii National Park, which spans nearly 1 million acres.
Creating the first comprehensive map and database of the diversity of life in the world's freshwater ecosystems, giving conservationists vital tools they need to understand patterns of biodiversity and the threats to it.
Strengthening the governance and sustainable livelihoods of nine impoverished Huilliche communities in Chile, allowing local people to improve their quality of life while conserving their natural resource base.

These successes are just three from a long list of incredible 2008 milestones that WWF reached with your ongoing support.

Thanks to you, we've been able to reverse some of the degradation of our planet's natural environment and we've worked to build a future in which human needs are met in harmony with nature. Here are a few more examples of our successes this year:

We kept climate change at the forefront, connecting the changes in our global climate to the needs and challenges of conserving the world's biodiversity. This year, WWF's research on Sumatra's Riau Province was the first scientific analysis of ties between deforestation and forest degradation, global climate change and local population declines of tigers and elephants. We also led the world's biggest power-down, WWF's Earth Hour 2008, during which more than 50 million people switched off their lights for one hour to participate in a global symbolic statement encouraging climate solutions.
We created millions of acres of new protected areas in endangered places. In central Sumatra, the government of Indonesia finally decided--at WWF's urging--to more than double the size of Tesso Nilo National Park, a priority area for tiger conservation. In the Congo Basin, we made progress in our efforts to create an expansive protected network to preserve the region's tropical rain forests and their high concentration of carbon stock. WWF's advocacy and expertise supported the Democratic Republic of Congo's commitment to establish 32 to 37 million acres of new protected areas, conserving an area roughly the size of Greece.
We protected endangered species around the world. In Coastal East Africa, we worked with community volunteers to safeguard sea turtles at sea and on nesting beaches in Kenya's Kiunga Marine National Reserve. Thanks to our efforts, there are about 10,000 successful hatchlings per year. In June, the U.S. became the first country in the world to ban the import and sale of illegally sourced wood and wood products, as part of the 2008 Farm Bill--a huge conservation victory for Sumatran tigers and rhinos, Siberian tigers, orangutans and many other species that depend on forest habitat around the globe. Thousands of WWF Conservation Action Network activists spoke out in support of the prohibition on illegal wood.
We promoted sustainable approaches to the use of renewable natural resources. WWF's Community Fisheries Program cosponsored the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification of the world's first sustainable tuna fishery--one that stretches over a vast area of the North and South Pacific. The San Diego-based American Albacore Fishing Association (AAFA) "pole and troll" method avoids bycatch, unlike more common methods which threaten the survival of tuna populations and accidentally kill many nontarget species. The MSC certification is already helping AAFA demonstrate the market benefit of sustainable harvested tuna.
We worked with some of the world's leading corporations to help green their supply chains and reduce the environmental footprints of their operations. In February, we convened the 2008 Climate Savers Summit in Tokyo; the result was a declaration in which companies including Allianz, Hewlett-Packard, Sony and Nike dramatically scaled up their commitments to actively promote a low-carbon lifestyle among consumers, engage business partners in emissions reductions, and share proven approaches so others can achieve similar results. By 2010, participants in WWF's Climate Savers program will collectively cut carbon emissions by over 14 million tons annually, the equivalent of taking more than a million homes off the electricity grid.

As you can see from even a few examples like these, your support, your actions, and your generosity have helped in so many ways to save endangered species, protect endangered habitats and address global threats. But these conservation battles must be won again and again. Together, we must be ever-vigilant, as wild animals and wild places face ongoing challenges.

With only a few days remaining in 2008, we're setting our sights on 2009. Can we count on your support for the pivotal year ahead? If you're able, I'm asking you to please give your year-end contribution to help us continue our successful conservation efforts.

With your generous gift, WWF can maintain momentum going into the new year. Simply visit our secure donation form and make your gift by December 31 for the 2008 tax year and help protect the future of nature.

For nearly 50 years, we have been committed to achieving measurable progress toward conserving the world's great natural habitats. On behalf of everyone at WWF, thank you for putting your trust in us and giving your support.

Sincerely yours,

Terry Macko
Vice President, Membership

The 80+ million acres of rain forest conserved by WWF's flagship Amazon Region Protected Areas program sequester 4.6 billion tons of carbon--more than the annual carbon emissions of the entire European Union.

Climate change will undoubtedly contribute to the local extinction of wildlife in the near future. It is looming particularly close in the Arctic for the polar bear, whose survival is intricately tied to the sea ice from which it hunts seals.

In the wake of the massive earthquake that struck China in May, WWF's Humanitarian Partnerships program is working to promote green construction in affected areas, including three panda conservation landscapes.
