A nature trust started by a billionaire businessman and a co-founder of the Bilderberg Group, which raises funds for the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF).

The 1001 Club emerged out of the Bilderberg/Steering committee during the late 1960s, centered around the chairman of that group, Bernhard von Biesterfeld.

Official Narrative

The following was taken verbatim (in November 2010) from WWF web site:

"The 1001: A Nature Trust is an endowment fund created in 1971 to provide WWF International with a financial base to maintain a sustainably managed organization. The fund aims to engage influential members of society, those that are able to bring about change in the world, in the conservation activities of WWF.

The idea for the fund came from Dr Anton Rupert, a founding member of WWF; HRH Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands translated the idea into reality by inviting 1000 influential people from around the world to join him in investing in the endowment – hence the name The 1001: A Nature Trust." [1]

Origins

The founder, Bernhard von Biesterfeld, was a deep politician who was Bilderberg/Steering committee/Chairman for over 20 years. A small group of fellow Bilderbergers (Gianni Agnelli and David Rockefeller of the Steering committee and Marcus Wallenberg Jr.) were regular Bilderbergers in the late 1960s, and guest of the late 1960s Bilderbergs included others who became members of the 1001 Club, including Douglas Dillon, Henry Ford II, Thomas Jones, Cyril Kleinwort, Allen Lambert, Robert McNamara, Stavros Niarchos, Hans Merkle and Philip Mountbatten.

Later Bilderberg Steering committee members who were also members of the 1001 club included Conrad Black, Bertrand Collomb, Alfred Herrhausen and Marcus "Husky" Wallenberg. In all, at least 43 members of the 1001 Club have also attended one or more Bilderberg meetings.[2]

4 members of the 1001 Club have also attended one or more meetings of Le Cercle: Basil Hersov, Manuel Fraga Iribarne, David Rockefeller, Ardeshir Zahedi.

Concerns

Behind the glossy, feel-good image cultivated by its PR people and on display at its Web Site [3] lies an altogether different reality.

A 1993 Washington Monthly article hints at it:

"The secret list of members includes a disproportionate percentage of South Africans, all too happy in an era of social banishment to be welcomed into a socially elite society. Other contributors include businessmen with suspect connections, including organized crime, environmentally destructive development, and corrupt African politics. Even an internal report called WWF's approach egocentric and neocolonialist."[4]
