Although I’m pretty sure the following names and
information is correct, I suggest you treat this article
with some caution. Some of the names are so
controversial I would like to have more primary sources
for them. As more information becomes available the
article will be updated.
Whether you look in Dutch, French, German, English, American, or
South-African newspapers, there is almost no information available
about the 1001 Club, or, as it is often referred to, the ’1001
Nature Trust’ and ’1001: A Nature’s Trust’. Even in the Netherlands,
where Bernhard’s involvement with Bilderberg should be widely known
by now, absolutely no one has heard of his role in creating the
The only official information available
about this club is that it was established in the early seventies by
Prince Bernhard, Prince Philip, Charles de Haes,
and Anton Rupert and that every member paid a one time fee of
$10,000 to get lifetime membership. That’s about it.
The strangest club in
the world? - Agha Abedi, Salem Bin Laden, Gyanendra Dev with Prince
Mortimer Bloomfield, and Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis.
In 1948, the International Union for the
Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) was erected,
mainly by Sir Julian Huxley, a famous biologist. Later, on September
11, 1961, Julian Huxley officially established the WWF, together
with people like Prince Bernhard and Prince Philip. Ten years later,
around 1971, WWF officials Anton Rupert, Prince Philip, and
Bernhard came together and decided to form a club that would
generate an independent source of income for the WWF.
Anton Rupert is said to have been the
one who came up with the idea. Bernhard became the ’figurehead’,
just as Joseph Retinger’s secretary described his role in the
creation of Bilderberg. Bernhard was well liked, knew many people on
both sides of the Atlantic, and as a prince, he was considered
Anton Rupert appointed the Belgian
economist Charles de Haes as Bernhard’s personal assistant. These
two approached most of the individuals that would be invited to the
1001 Club. In 1974, all the members were recruited, each of them
having paid the one-time contribution of $10,000. From this point
on, we have very little information about how the club organizes its
meetings and how much each of the members keep contributing. In
1980, Private Eye magazine wrote (1):
"The puzzling question is what do
the ’1001’ get for their money apart from private prestige and
the privilege of dining with Prince Bernhard or the Duke of
This is the only reference I (initially)
found that talks about this club actually arranging meetings. The
mentioning of diners seems to indicate the 1001 Club is organized in
the same way as the
Pilgrims Society, which arranges diners two or
three times a year with several hundred members attending at a time.
With every diner you have several guest speakers that are invited.
Of course, if the 1001 Club has been set up in the same way is only
our best guess. One thing we do know is that new members were still
invited in 1996. On the website of Buttonboss Plc. we can read in
their history section:
"Buttonboss celebrated its 20th Jubileum and, once again,
Prince Bernhard honoured us with his
presence in attending the spectacular celebration party in
Twente (Holland). It was on this occasion that he, in name of
fellow members of the selection committee, offered Henk Brusse
membership of the "1001-Club", for which he was responsible in
founding. This club compromises 1001 good friends and relations
of H.R.H. Prince Bernhard, all of whom support the world-wide
activities associated with the World Wild Life Nature Fund."
It took some time and a lot of emailing,
but on August 10, 2005 the Dutch branch of the WWF finally confirmed
that meetings are still going on to this day (translation):
"I received your question about the
1001-Club. Regular meetings indeed do take place. The location
is different every time. For instance, last April there has been
a Panda Ball in Monaco and a diner in Barcelona.
... Could you please inform me why you are interested in this
In my email I asked if the meetings were
held in London. The WWF employee said it is very likely that
meetings have been organized there too. Besides the fact that this
time I actually received an answer that was helpful, what is very
interesting is that the information was given to the WWF
headquarters in Switzerland, because a short time after I replied to
her email (to thank her and to explain my ’casual’ interest), WWF
Switzerland became very interested in my website.
I never said I had a site so it’s
obvious someone within the WWF either looked up my name on the
internet or did a search on the ’Pilgrims Society’ which I mentioned
in my email. As far as I can see, my site only received visitations
from the WWF’s headquarters and not from the Dutch branch I sent my
It seems the WWF
isn’t used to questions about the 1001 Club. It took WWF UK five
weeks to reply and WWF Belgium three weeks. According to the Dutch
Branch of the WWF
questions should normally be answered in two days. When WWF Holland
the Swiss HQ immediately visited my site, without me ever having
contacted them or
having mentioned I had a site.
3 days after I uploaded the initial 1001
Club article and 5 weeks after I sent them an email WWF UK finally
decided to reply. They confirmed the 1001 Club is still organizing
meetings and added to it that the one-time introduction fee has been
increased to $25,000.
"I have been in discussions with our
major support section in order to find all the information that
you require about the 1001 club. There is a one off membership
fee of $25,000 (US Dollars) and there are field trips and events
organized mainly by WWF International. If you have further
queries please come back to us..."
This short message took them 5 weeks!
And why did this person have to go in "discussions" to receive "all
this information"? Needles to say I did get back to them and asked
if the regular staff actually knows about the 1001 Club or if all
this information is held behind closed doors within the WWF
headquarters. On September 5, 2005, I received the answer. If we
skip the usual apology for the delay, the whole email reads:
"I would like to inform you that the
1001 Club is a scheme run by WWF-International, which is
situated in Switzerland, and for detailed information we have to
As expected, the answer doesn’t tell us
a whole lot. Anyway, if you have a thousand members with an average
age of 45-50 years or so, you’d expect that at least an average of
about 20 people die each year. 20 new members who each pay the
$25,000 introduction fee is a baseline income for the 1001 Club of
at least $500,000 annually.
An obvious difference between the Anglo-American Pilgrims Society is
that members of the 1001 Club are recruited from all over the world.

Pao from Hong Kong
But what’s the purpose of all these
people meeting? According to the afore mentioned 1980 article in
"The answer lies in the fact that
the WWF International, in the cause of conservation, is
increasingly shaking hands with economic and environmental
ministers from Third World countries who control the important
resources and markets which industrialists so desperately need.
Under the guise of the WWF, businessmen can casually meet
politicians who share their view that what is good for business
is good for bank accounts."
20 years later, Dutch Attorney J. Wilgers explains to us how the
IUCN and the WWF, according to his
own research, have been created as fronts for British
neo-colonialism (translation) (2):
"In 1948, the IUCN, the
International Union for the Conservation of Nature, was
established. The most important person involved was Julian
Huxley. This IUCN had a close working relationship with the
British Colonial and Foreign Office. All his life Huxley had
been working on projects related to the conservation of nature.
In 1960, he made a trip through the British colonies that were
about to become independent. He made sure that the British
government was able to keep their hold on the nature reserves
located in the countries of the Commonwealth, even today.
Somehow he was able to convince the new African leaders that
every person from Africa was a natural born poacher.
Great Britain has always been
preoccupied with the capture of raw materials from the countries
in the Commonwealth and the protection of the unlimited supply
of it. It is noteworthy that the IUCN still has the affix, "for
natural resources" [International Union for Conservation of
Nature and Natural Resources]. I also point to the fact that the
IUCN is an extension of the government offices and the public
sector of the United Kingdom, because in the end, these are the
real beneficiaries. A year after Huxley’s trip, the WWF was
established with the sole purpose of gathering funds for the
IUCN. The IUCN went to the background at the moment the WWF came
30 years later, the WWF controls 10% of the world’s surface.
They control 40% of Tanzania. At the moment they are focused on
South-America. This is something of the last 5 years [since
There are 2 types of parks: nature parks and strategic parks.
The official purpose of the nature parks is the protection of
nature. Often, these parks contain important minerals like
diamond or uranium. Locals are encouraged to leave or simply
chased away. Type 2 are the strategic parks. If you look
carefully you’ll find that these parks are either located on
certain ridges useful for military observation, or they are
border transcending parks like for example those in South-Africa
and Mozambique... It is remarkable that corridors have been
projected in such a way that they cleverly combine the
preservation of nature with the gaining of a military
WWF map from a
2001. New parks have been created in the mean time.
It is known that in the past SAS
units of the British army have been flown into South-Africa and
were stationed on territory controlled by the WWF with the
purpose of conducting military operations... Military units have
been trained in these kinds of parks and were later brought in
connection with murders in the South-African townships. In the
Zambezi-Valley, members of the military wing of the ANC have
been shot at from WWF helicopters. The Zambesi-Valley was the
primary entrance into South-Africa. Under the cover of fighting
poachers ANC members have been executed without any form of
trial. I call that an undeclared war or genocide."
Wilgers is talking about one and half
million deaths, most of them ANC members. He cites a 1989
Commonwealth report for that number. A second wave between 1990 and
1995 killed about 10,000 people (3). These so called ’strategic
parks’ don’t seem to be limited to Southern Africa. For instance, if
you take a look at Pakistan, our ’ally’ in the War on Terror, you’ll
see 5 major national parks in the north of the country. One is
located at the border with India, another at the border with
and yet another one at the border with Northern Afghanistan.
The management of these parks is working
closely together with the IUCN and the WWF. The Aga Khan Rural
Support Program (AKRSP) of 1001 Club member Prince Sadruddin Aga
Khan is another partner in many of the same projects in that area. I
don’t know if these parks are used to conduct some type of military
operations, but they sure are conveniently located and fit right in
with the words of J. Wilgers.
3 major parks located
at the borders of the surrounding countries. More detailed
geographic information can be found at the websites cited.
Wilgers was persecuted by the WWF for
making public statements that the World Wide Fund for Nature is a
criminal enterprise. Unfortunately for the WWF they lost this case,
although they never had to admit Wilgers was right. Wilgers wasn’t
"knowingly speaking untruths" or something like that. I guess you
have to be an attorney to understand that kind of stuff. Years
later, I made a call to Mr. Wilgers, who told me the 1001 Club is
directed by the Privy Council and MI6, which now turns out to be
incredibly similar to the leadership of
Le Cercle. The last 3
chairmen of Le Cercle were Privy Councilors and deeply involved with
British and foreign intelligence.
A lot more has been written about the policies of the World Wide
Fund for Nature and their intelligence service TRAFFIC, but to me
the real concern is too find out what the purpose of the 1001 is,
who its members are, and how its meetings are organized. When you
take a look at the limited and in part outdated membership list I’ve
been able to compile, you’ll find the leaders and founders of the
nature organizations below. Can you imagine how many represented
organizations we might find if the entire list is available?
African Wildlife Foundation
||Used to be
called African Wildlife Leadership Foundation.
It was founded in 1961 by five individuals.
Among them were Russell E. Train, Kermit
Roosevelt Jr., and Arthur Arundel (1001 Club)
Train founded the World Resources Institute.
Roosevelt was a member of Le Cercle, co-founder
of the Safari Club, and head of Operation Ajax
which overthrew the Shah of Iran.
Aga Khan Rural Support Program (AKRSP)
1001 Club member Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan.
According to the World Bank in 2002:
"By many measures the Aga Khan Rural Support
Program (AKRSP) is a highly successful NGO-run
rural development program. It reaches some
900,000 people in about 1,100 villages in the
Northern Areas and Chitral District of Pakistan,
near the Afghanistan border."
by the Latin American globalist giant Gustavo
Cisneros. This leading Venezuelan
environmentalist group was shut down after it
was caught faking dolphin killings for a
campaign against the tuna fishing industry. At
times, the WWF and Greenpeace have been accused
of doing the same thing.
Club of Rome
founded by 1001 Club member Alexander King and
FIAT’s second man Aurelio Peccei. The former
long time head of FIAT, Giovanni Agnelli has
been named as a member of the 1001 Club. Two
other individuals who helped with the
establishing of the Club of Rome were Dean Rusk
and Carroll Wilson, both members of the Pilgrims
Society. King went on to work for the OECD.
International Council for Game and Wildlife
Carlos of Spain is the patron of this
organization. Carlos is a founder and honorary
president of WWF-Spain and has recently been
accused of being an overly aggressive hunter,
not paying attention to the age of an animal, if
it’s pregnant, or the amount he shoots
Besides being a member of the 1001 Club, King
Carlos is a member of the Knights of Malta and
very close to Opus Dei. He has been hunting with
George H.W. Bush (another Knight of Malta) and
other heads of state.
||1001 Club member
and Canadian businessman David McTaggart was
among the primary founders of Greenpeace in 1971
and became its chief spokesperson. From 1972 and
on, he did everything he could to stop the
French from conducting nuclear weapons tests in
the Pacific. ’Former’ SAS units have assisted
Greenpeace in this effort, which seems to have
given the French an extra reason to bomb the
Rainbow Warrior in New Zealand in 1985.
McTaggart was chairman of Greenpeace
International from 1979 until 1991. He died in a
car accident on March 23, 2001 near his home in
Peace Parks Foundation

Lord Buxton was CEO of the Anglia TV Group from
1958 to 1986. He was chairman of the nature
documentary producer Survival Anglia from 1986
to 1992. Besides being Prince Philip’s right
hand, he actively suppressed information about
the WWF and the 1001 journalist Kevin Dowling
wanted to make public.
||According to EIR,
1001 Club member Arthur Arundel founded the
Wildcat Foundation. The Wildcat Foundation seems
to be a thing of the past.
||From Hong Kong
to South-America, all the national heads of the
WWF are members of the 1001 Club.
Zoological Society of London
||1001 Club member
Lord Solly Zuckerman was president of this
environmental group from 1977-1984. Zuckerman
stood in close contact with Julian Huxley and
was a science advisor to the British government.
Le Cercle, a lot of members of the
1001 Club have a remarkably controversial background. We only know
the names of a relatively small amount of club members, which
probably gives us a rather lopsided view of the average visitor of
the 1001 Club. Persons who have reviewed the entire list undoubtedly
chose some of the more controversial individuals.
That having been said, I can’t think of
a good reason to recruit the entire radical Zionist and Arab mafia
in a group that is supposed to discuss environmental issues. Below
is an extract of the more controversial and/or remarkable
individuals. You can find all the names I’ve been able to gather on
the complete membership list.

the Safra couple were Nancy Reagan, Condoleezza
Rice, and Prince Charles.
Mobuto Sese Seko
dictator of Zaire, which went from one of the
richest countries in Africa to one of the
poorest. In 1961, Mobutu overthrew the communist
Lumumba and, with the support of Belgium,
executed him. He forced foreign business
interests out of the country. Supported the
Rwandan Hutu’s, even after the 1994 genocide.
When his government issued an order in November
1996 forcing Tutsis to leave Zaire on penalty of
death, they erupted in rebellion. From eastern
Zaire they launched an offensive to overthrow
Mobutu which succeeded in 1997. Laurence Kabila
(assassinated in 2001) came to power. The German
BND accused Vatican agent Herbert Batliner from
Lichtenstein of laundering money for Mobutu.
Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis
of the family are managed through the Thurn und
Taxis Group. This is an old and powerful family
from the Habsburg empire which went through some
rough times during WWII. After the Prince
suddenly died in 1992, his widow, Gloria, is
doing a great job in further rebuilding the
wealth of the family and raising his son. The
Palace of Thurn and Taxis in Bavaria is still in
use today and contains more rooms than
Buckingham Palace. The corrupt neo-fascist
German politician Franz Josef Strauss (Le Cercle)
died in 1988 while on a hunting trip with the
prince. In 1990, Joseph Brewda wrote something
very interesting for EIR
"On Oct. 15, 1982, a month after the 1982
massacres, Sharon held meetings—in the Chouf
Mountains of Lebanon and at his Negev ranch—with
Falange leader Camille Chamoun, Uri Dan, Rupert
Murdoch, Charles Douglas-Home, and others, to
move the "Landscam" West Bank real estate grab
forward. On Nov. 15, 1982, a final meeting took
place on several real estate purchases, mostly
through Arab middle-men, to push the massive
expansion of Jewish settlements throughout the
West Bank—at a handsome profit. Attending the
meeting at Sharon’s ranch were: Kissinger, Lord
Harlech (Sir David Ormsby-Gore), Prince Johannes
von Thurn und Taxis, Tory Parliamentarian Julian
Amery, Sir Edmund Peck, and MI6 Mideast mandarin
Nicholas Elliot. "
I could be wrong,
but I never heard EIR, Joseph Brewda, or pretty
much anyone else talk in any detail about Le
Cercle. In the meantime I found out that Julian
Amery was the chairman of this secret
intelligence group and Nicholas Elliot was
another important member. Amery’s father was a
hugely important Zionist. Look at the article
about Le Cercle for all the details. Of course
it’s no surprize that Kissinger is said to have
been a member too. By the way, last year the
prince’s favorite fashion designer, Rudolph

Baron Heinrich von Thyssen-Bornemisza
family’s fortune was built upon a steel and
armaments empire. In contrast with the Thurn un
Taxis family, the Thyssen were one of the
biggest supporters of the Hitler regime and had
been building up the German war machine in
cooperation with the Harrimans, Bushes,
Rockefellers, and Fords. Pilgrims Society member
John J. McCloy would acquit his father of all
the Nuremberg charges, together with Hjalmar
Schacht and Alfried Krupp. His second marriage,
in 1954, was to Anglo-Indian fashion model Nina
Dyer. After they divorced she married prophet
Mohammed descendent and 1001 Club member Prince
Sadruddin Aga Khan, divorced again, and
subsequently committed suicide. His third wife,
from which he also divorced, would later hook up
with Alexander Onassis, son of Aristotle Onassis
(1001 Club family). He married 2 more times.
Today his empire has merged with that of the
Krupp family, forming ThyssenKrupp AG, which has
about 190.000 employees worldwide and annual
sales of about 40 billion euros (2004). Franz
Josef Strauss has been accused of taking at
least one half a million dollar bribe from the
Thyssens in order to promote some of their
weapon systems. The company is represented at
Bohemian Grove camp Mandalay through James H.
Brandi (Pilgrims Society family). George H.W.
Bush has also visited the camp at times,
probably to remember those good old days.
