Claims that the World Wide Fund for Nature is in bed with paramilitaries point to a wider need for root and branch reform
World Wide Fund for Nature, put down your weapons. You are not a mercenary. You are not a government. You are not a terrorist. Your mission: to save the planet. Saving the planet does not happen by shooting people, or even by threatening them.
