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.
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.
WWF works to protect Finland's northern habitats and species like the Saimaa ringed seal and Lesser White-fronted Goose.
WWF's US office in Anchorage works on Arctic issues across Alaska, and on conservation challenges that cross borders.
