World Wildlife Fund Profile

Ever heard of an animal called the pika? Or the pichi? How about the golden-rumped sengi? If you haven't, you're not alone. They're all animals on the endangered species list, but WWF - no, not the wrestlers - has been working hard to protect them as well as other animals that are close to extinction. Find out more about the World Wildlife Fund!

 

World Wildlife Fund - WWF's Smackdown on Pollution

Animals, insects and plants are threatened by factors like global warming, toxic pollution, deforestation, overfishing and poaching (hunting animals illegally). Many species have become extinct, or are near it, so the World Wildlife Fund has made it their mission to preserve nature and protect animals around the world. But WWF doesn't determine which species are considered endangered - the IUCN (the World Conservation Union) does. By working with the IUCN, scientists and environmentalists, WWF is determined to protect wildlife so that we'll have a healthy planet for future generations.

World Wildlife Fund - Protecting the Endangered

Although WWF works to protect all endangered species, they pay special attention to tigers, rhinos, elephants, great apes, pandas, whales, dolphins and marine turtles, which all need extra protection in order to survive. To find the complete list of critically endangered species, check out the IUCN's Red List of Threatened Species.

World Wildlife Fund - How You Can Help!

With so many endangered species around the world, WWF needs your help! By making a cash donation, your money will help fight poaching and prevent habitat loss. You can even adopt an animal in the wild (adoption fees cost $25 for a single tiger, elephant, panda or gorilla). You won't be able to take it home with you, but you will get an adoption certificate and computer desktop images of your adopted animal. So what are you waiting for? Head to the official World Wildlife Fund website, www.wwf.org to get more info on how you can help protect endangered animals and their habitats!

Two years ago my parents broke up. I was never really the same after that point. My mother she began to just not care about anything. She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting

theres this guy that i really REALLY like, im not sure if he likes me back. i put my mobile # on a piece of paper and slipped it in his locker, he hasn't texted or called me yet. Today at lunch i asked his friend to ask if he likes anyone but his friend keeps lying to me and won't tell me if he said anything. The guy and I were best friends in 5th grade but now that we're in different classes we don't talk much anymore. My friends said that i have a chance with him and that we have a lot in common, but im pretty sure he likes this other girl but im also pretty sure he likes me. I want to make a move but i don't wanna end our friendship i don't know what to do.

It's good to have both to talk too about things. But, what's the point of being with someone if you can't trust them enough to even tell them things?
