PARTNERS & SUPPORTERS

has approved a project to reintroduce
wild tigers and we're partnering with
Kazakhstan on a tiger reintroduction
plan to bring the iconic cats back to
their historic range.
Pierrette Schlettwein is helping
WWF fight poaching and influence
policy at the highest level through our
Wildlife Crime Initiative. This initiative
drives concrete action against the
illegal wildlife trade chain (poaching,
trafficking, and consumption),
while building a strong network of
relationships with governments,
NGOs and the private sector. Her
support enabled a critical series of
surveys and reports highlighting
ranger welfare issues in Asia and
Africa, which WWF is working to
address. It also helped us roll out
zero poaching initiatives in priority
sites in Africa and Asia.

The NOMIS Foundation helped
support innovative research by the Luc
Hoffmann Institute to analyse risks
for complex systems involving food,
energy, water and the economy. The
first stage of the Institute's
LIVES project focused on Cambodia
and the results were so promising
that the second phase was launched
this year in Colombia. LIVES will help
a network of Colombian stakeholders
plan a sustainable development
scenario for the Bita river basin, a
tributary of the Orinoco River.
Åsa and Martin Hintze helped
achieve a major victory in Doñana
National Park - a World Heritage
site in Spain - when an official
commitment was made to cancel
destructive river dredging for
commercial shipping access. Their
critical support is also helping

indigenous communities to protect
the unique biodiversity and sensitive
forest landscapes of the Kikori river
basin in Papua New Guinea, a region
currently under consideration for
designation as a World Heritage site.
Ongoing support from an anonymous
donor was provided for our Campaign
for a Living Planet Leadership Fund.
We also thank them for helping WWF
implement our global conservation
priorities in marine and climate policy.
Another generous anonymous
donor has supported our work in
Bhutan to protect fragile forests,
rivers and species populations while
improving local livelihoods. A
highlight from this year was the
first-ever nationwide snow leopard
survey, which counted 96 in the
highlands of Bhutan - indicating that
much of the country's high-mountain
ecosystems remain healthy. This is
the first time any snow leopard range
country has conducted a full national
census of the elusive animal.
The Ocean Foundation is a
new supporter of our marine work,
focused on improving and
transforming small-scale fisheries in
the Mediterranean for the 300,000
people who work in the sector. Over
85 per cent of the Mediterranean's
fish stocks are overfished and
small-scale fishers have had little
opportunity to propose solutions for
sustainable stocks and income.
The project aims to change that
by offering true co-management
opportunities to small-scale fishers
in eight Mediterranean countries.
Philippe Bertherat has also
generously contributed to our
global conservation priorities.
