__“we didn't inherite planet Earth from our parents..

...we borrowed it from our children!”__

(SVFF slogan)

WorldWide Flora Fauna in amateur radio programm, wants to draw attention to the importance of protecting Nature, Flora and Fauna. In this spirit, amateur radio operators setup and operate their radio stations from designated Nature Parks and Protected Nateur Areas whilist giving the ham radio community aninteresting activity to contact. WWFF is an International and NON-COMMERCIAL programm, run by the coordinators of a large number of National Flora & Fauna programms.

The Program was launched in 2008 and but uses the activity databeases of the participating members (containing activities from early 1995) as collected in the WWFF logsearch and builds upon the rules.

If you are "hunter" of a WWFF/SVFF Award you need to contact locations, possessing an official status of National Parks or Nature Reserves all over SV land (GReece), listed in the WWFF Program .



In the following WWFF/SVFF Directory you have a list from WWFF Database of National Parks and Nature Reserves throughout GReece. Also, during a QSO is provided a symbol, for example: SVFF-001, SVFF-002, SVFF-003, which corresponds to certain National Park or Nature Reserve. Moreover, the Internet site contains a DataBase (which is currently being filled up) that has an indication from which location one or another station works.
