WWF-Australia has up to 100 Governors, who are the voting members of WWF-Australia and our most high-profile champions. They are appointed because of their commitment to WWF’s mission, their standing in the community and their ability to contribute to our success.

Governors bring a diverse range of skills, influence and expertise to the governance of WWF. From backgrounds as varied as conservation, science and research, international development, business, public relations, marketing, law and governance, they use their expertise, influence and networks to help us achieve our conservation goals. Many Governors contribute to internal working groups and provide strategic advice across the organisation.

Governors are initially appointed for a four-year term, which may be renewed. New Governors are nominated by current Governors, and appointed by the Board of Directors.
