World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
The World Wildlife Fund's (WWF's) mission is the conservation of nature. This non-profit has been active for more than 45 years. An international organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF combines outreach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature. Combining global outreach with local expertise WWF has led a variety of adaptation and resilience projects around the world (which are described on their website), published leading text on climate change issues, and established the global initiative Earth Hour, when millions of people around the world cast a vote in favor of action on climate change. Also, their Conservation Action Network is designed to engage members and has recently focused on climate change and clean energy legislation.
