WWF is an international conservation NGO operating in the Kikori River Basin which covers Kikori, Bosavi, Kutubu & Semberigi areas in the Southern Highlands Province. 

Its main aim is to encourage the local communities to preserve and maintain the integrity of the natural rich cultural and biodiversity of the regions in which they belong to as its their pride and life. Although, challenges are faced in all forms of life and phases, there are opportunities and strengths in which the people can step on not to lose track of their past and future. 

In this case, as the organizer of the event "Kutubu Kundu and Digaso Festival" WWF is proud to remind the people of Kutubu, Kikori, Bosavi and Semberigi again that "lets not forget that our pride is our culture and environment" therefore the theme for 2016 is "TINGIM GUT BIHAIN BILONG YUMI" our actions now will determine our future!
