#TOGETHERBAND in action

With WWF Climate & Polar Programme

#TOGETHERBAND aims to raise awareness of WWF's work as well as funding through band sales.

What they do: WWF monitors vital polar species and works to conserve their frozen habitats. By coordinating with Arctic people, scientists and governments, WWF is helping to develop a network of protected areas across the Arctic, to help cope with challenges like climate change and increased development in this unique environment. WWF campaigns for the UK to increase its climate ambition to deliver on the Paris Agreement and get the UK to net-zero emissions by 2045, so as to act as a leader on the world stage to drive action to keep warming to 1.5º.

Their aim: To help tackle the causes and effects of climate change and protect our planet’s crucial frozen landscapes.
