WWF Mediterranean

For nature. For people.

You don’t need us to tell you how precious the Mediterranean is.
Turquoise seas. Emerald forests. Crystal waters. The jewels of the Mediterranean have dazzled since the dawn of civilization. And its natural riches continue to sustain and delight millions of people today.
At WWF Mediterranean, we treasure the Med as much as you do. That’s why we’re working across the region to protect the landscapes and seascapes we all love, and to make sure nature and people can thrive together – now and always.

Who we are


The Mediterranean is as beautiful as it is fragile. Today it is under threat. Learn more about what WWF is doing to change this.
