WWF Spain is the Spanish section of WWF, the global environmental organisation. It is a non-profit, independent, multicultural and non-partisan organisation, founded in 1968 and declared of Public Utility in 1969. WWF works locally and globally for the conservation of nature in Spain.
WWF Spain offers realistic solutions, using the best available scientific information to address problems, seeking dialogue and avoiding unnecessary confrontation, building concrete conservation solutions through a combination of field projects, policy initiatives, capacity building and educational work; involving local communities and stakeholders in the planning and execution of its field programmes and establishing partnerships with other organisations, governments, businesses and local communities.
WWF Spain has been working on Iberian Lynx conservation for the last two decades, with several conservation projects, including two LIFE projects: LIFE 06/Nat/E/209 “Conservation and reintroduction of the Iberian Lynx (Lynx pardinus) in Andalusia" and LIFE 10Nat/ES/570 “Recovery of the area of the historical presence of the Iberian Lynx".
