Toxic Chemicals Initiative

This World Wildlife Fund initiative is aimed at banning the most deadly, persistent pollutants (such as DDT, PCBs, and dioxins) that endanger every species, ecosystem, and community on Earth. The serious damage to the health of wildlife and humans caused by synthetic chemical contamination is addressed. There are documents about persistent organic pollutants, and endocrine disrupting chemicals. There are also several photographs of polar bears and other animals.
