Wild Sourced & Agroforestry Products

Wild Sourced & Agroforestry Products

Wild-sourced products are natural resources, most often plants and their parts, collected from the wild, such as berries, nuts and fungi. Agroforestry is the practice of combining forestry and agricultural principles in both traditional and modern natural resource management systems. Such processes are key components of sustainable forest management and can provide sustainable incomes for local communities while leaving precious forest ecosystems intact.

Marine & Freshwater Resources

Marine & Freshwater Resources

Marine harvest, or ocean farming, is the practice of cultivating and harvesting sea vegetables, shellfish and fish. These can be processed into an array of products such as food, fertilizer or biofuel. As our global population grows, so does the pressure on marine and freshwater ecosystems and, consequently, the need for more sustainable aquatic resources.

Eco Lodges

Eco Lodges

Because their clients are precisely in search of pristine nature experiences, eco lodges have an inherent interest in preserving biodiversity. Many lodges also operate in areas of key biodiversity significance. As a result, eco lodges can be important local stakeholders in work to safeguard natural habitats and the species living within. Eco Lodges are also potential ambassadors for biodiversity and can help bring global attention to local environmental issues.

Enabling Technology

Enabling technology

Technology plays a vital role for conservation businesses. The unprecedented availability and reduced cost of aerial imagery by sensors on small drones or large scale satellites is one example of how the collection of habitat data and monitoring of ecosystems at landscape scale is being revolutionized. WWF IV assesses technology in five areas that directly relate to our focus verticals ; i ) sourcing ii) processing iii) operations iv) marketing v) monitoring.
