Where we work


Since 1992, WWF's Arctic Programme has focused on conservation across the circumpolar world.

The Last Ice Area

As climate change reduces the size and duration of summer Arctic sea ice, scientific projections show it will last the longest above Canada and Greenland. This is the Last Ice Area.

Barents Sea

With its relatively warm ocean currents and high biodiversity, the Barents is one of Europe’s last large, clean and relatively undisturbed marine ecosystems.

Beaufort, Bering & Chukchi Seas

Wildlife doesn't recognize borders, and these seas shared by Canada, Russia and the United States are a perfect opportunity for Arctic collaboration.


The Arctic is an important part of Canada's identity, and WWF supports its healthy future.


WWF works to protect Finland's northern habitats and species like the Saimaa ringed seal and Lesser White-fronted Goose.


WWF was the first global conservation organization to open an office in Greenland.

United States

WWF's US office in Anchorage works on Arctic issues across Alaska, and on conservation challenges that cross borders.

Outside the Arctic

What happens in the Arctic doesn't stay in the Arctic.
