    WWF has just given the classification. It doesn't come under any specific program, AFAIK.
    One day, perhaps, love may die of disuse, left to rust in wind and weather.
  • Adding to that.

    The terms “flagship” and “keystone” have generally consistent definitions across the conservation community, however “priority species” is a WWF term, and is solely for the purposes of planning and simple communication.
    For WWF, a “priority species” may be either a flagship or a keystone species and is chosen to represent an ecoregion or region.
    A “priority species” is reflective of a key threat across that ecoregion - such that conservation of the species will contribute significantly to a broader threat mitigation outcome. It is often crucial to the economic and/or spiritual wellbeing of peoples within that ecoregion.

    Priority Species is a program of WWF and yeah others are generic ecology terms

    But can u confirm whether Living Himalayas Initiative Network is part of WWF

    You are right as well as wrong.
    It is not a program.

    “priority species” is a WWF term, and is solely for the purposes of planning and simple communication.
