The Nando and Elsa Peretti Foundation joins WMBD 2017!

The Nando and Elsa Peretti Foundation was founded in 2000 as a philanthropic foundation, at the initiative of Elsa Peretti. Over its 17 years of activity, the Foundation has awarded grants to over 852 projects in 79 different countries all over the world, for an overall estimated value of more than 42.300.000 euros.

The commitment for issues concerning the environment and wildlife conservation has remained unaltered over time, funding several public awareness campaigns, and projects for the conservation of endemic species. We are currently supporting a three-year project by Birdlife International aiming at fighting the illegal and indiscriminate trapping of migrating birds along around 700 kilometers of Egypt's Mediterranean coastline.

We join the WMBD through our website: on May 10, the website will be dedicated to the campaign "Their future is our future".
