We should do everything to keep endangered species alive: NGO rep

Katarzyna Karpa-Świderek of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) foundation told PolandIN about the activities of this NGO in the field of protecting and restoring endangered species.

“We left 25 percent of the land for wild nature. These last areas of wilderness, the last wild animals that we have, these are the animals we try to protect,” Ms Karpa-Świderek said.

The representative of the WWF was asked which animals the foundation is taking care of in Poland.

“In Poland and Europe, we are well-known for [helping] European bison. This is a magnificent animal which was almost extinct. It was restored from a couple of individuals, and now we have around 2,000 European bison, which is great news,” she said.
