WCFF's mission is to inform, engage and inspire audiences about the upmost need and importance of the protection of global biodiversity.
WCFF does this through the annual film festivals in New York, Los Angeles and Monterrey, Mexico. WCFF also hosts in partnership events in Brazil, China, Nigeria and other countries. WCFF's educational outreach programs take place on college and university campuses across the globe. All education outreach events are free for students, staff, faculty and the public to attend.
People that attend and participate in WCFF events are international wildlife conservationists, filmmakers, photographers, scientists and people across the globe that work toward the preservation of global biodiversity.
