Open WWF office in the Czech Republic

Dear WWF,

my name is Veronika Gregusova. I am a Master student of International Relations with a B.A. degree in Environmental Studies. I would like to know, whether it is possible to open a WWF office in the Czech Republic?

I love the work that WWF does. With its transnational network of offices, it can tackle trans-boundary environmental problems more effectively than small NGOs dispersed across the globe.

In the Czech Republic, we have many environmental NGOs, but I think that we are missing the international level of environmental protection. I would love to work on establishing the office, if that is possible. :-)

I am looking forward to your answer.

Veronika

    Hello Veronika

    Thanks for your interest in WWF in establishing an office in the Czech Republic.  Presently, WWF has primary offices in 50 plus countries around the world. For the time being, it has been decided that our organization should concentrate on strengthening the existing WWF network and conservation programmes, and not to set up new offices. 
    Many of our European offices actually oversee projects that span several countries. 

    The Czech republic is covered by our WWF Danube-Carpathian Programme Office (DCPO)
    Their contact details can be found at

    You may also wish to contact our European Police Office

    All the best and thank you for your interest in WWF.

  • Dear Miriam,

    Thank you very much for your reply. I can understand the current policy, which focuses on improving the effectiveness. I wish you good luck with that. I also wish, though, that one day Czech Republic can also have an office. :-)

    Kind regards,

    Veronika Gregušová
