The Foundation works to protect old-growth forests, expand habitats for endangered species on public and private lands, and link key wildlife corridors.

The Weeden Foundation has supported International and Domestic Population Stabilization projects based on the rationale that an increasing population causes greater impact on the environment and loss of biodiversity.
