WWF Spain celebrates with Joarjo “50 years of environmental conservation”

While JOARJO already celebrated more than a decade of life (in 2019 we celebrated the 60 + 2 anniversary), an association was born in Madrid that would end up being part of the DNA of this company: the Association for the Defense of Nature (Adena), more forward recognized as WWF Spain.

Founded 50 years ago at the initiative of a group of naturalists, scientists, businessmen and people from different sectors of Spanish society, this committed organization focused its efforts on the conservation of wild species and spaces against the many threats of the time, helping to the sensitization of society and training a whole new generation of young people in respect for the environment.

In 2019 WWF Spain continues to be the largest independent international organization dedicated to the defense of nature and the environment.

At JOARJO we are proud to be part of this great cause that concerns us all, present and future. For this reason, we are even more excited to have received this letter that recognizes our support and wants to make us sharers in the achievements we have made and that we want to share with all of you:

Letter from WWF Spain to JOARJO

“Thanks for being part of WWF Spain, together we keep alive the green lungs of the planet and the rivers, we protect the wild life and the oceans and we fight against global threats such as climate change.”
