The Wild World of People and Nature

 

      

 

David and Cate Kuhn will give a presentation entitled “The Wild World of People and Nature.  They have been employees of WWF and residents of Washington DC for 6+ years.  They will talk about current threats to people and nature, what's being done to address these risks, and what you can do to contribute to the mission.

 

Cate Kuhn said that for 50 years, the World Wildlife Fund, Inc. (WWF) has been working to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth. 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.  The Kuhns want people to know that WWF's mission goes far beyond species conservation.  Oceans plastics, climate resilience, and food waste are just a few of the topics WWF employees pursue every day, and people are right at the center of what they do.
