WWF-Australia is part of the WWF International Network, the world’s leading, independent conservation organisation. We are active in over 100 countries and have close to 5 million supporters internationally. WWF’s mission is to halt the decline of threatened plants and animals and to support their recovery. We know that we can achieve more by partnering, sharing, empowering communities, forming alliances and building a movement for the environment. Working together is the answer. It is our goal to bring about this unified voice for nature.
Earth Hour’s greatest strength is the power of people. Since it began in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour has become the world’s largest grassroots movement for the planet. The campaign has brought the subject of climate change into the mainstream. At 8.30 pm on Saturday, 28 March 2020, the world will switch off its lights for one hour to send a strong message of support for stronger climate change action to protect biodiversity.
