WWF Romania's priorities are to protect forests, water and wildlife. To protect the forests, in 2012 WWF laid the foundations of legislation to protect virgin forests and identified over 30,000 ha of virgin forests in the past 5 years. It was also among the organizations that fought for the inclusion of 24,000 ha of virgin forests in UNESCO's patrimony in July.
"Forests in Romania are home to a lot of animals, some of which have already disappeared from other countries, such as the brown bear. That's why, to add an educational component, toys in stores can be found in a special box with information about the wild species that each plush represents and for which every person who buys a WWF toy fights. For example, 40% of Europe's bears live in Romania and, by choosing a plush bear, help protect them by supporting WWF efforts, "said Alexandra Dumitrescu, Digital Fundraising Coordinator at WWF Romania.
Protecting natural rivers in Romania is another priority of WWF, which is fighting to save the Jiu and restore the Danube meadow, with 2,000 ha being already reborn. Regarding wildlife, WWF brought back the bumps in the Tarsus Mountains in the Southern Carpathians and struggled to combat poaching in the sturgeon, but also to actively keep the only bearded orphanage in Europe.
