Our vision is to protect and interconnect at least half of the planet, land and water, because wild-areas provide essential social, spiritual, biological and economic benefits – Nature Needs Half™. We envision a planet with abundant wildlife and wild places, which produces ample clean water, fresh air and natural resources that support all life. We believe that intact wilderness areas are an essential core element of a healthy modern human society.
Our Vision in Action
How we work: WILD works for wilderness and wildlife in a collaborative manner, across borders and in many different cultures. We work with local partners to ensure that projects are implemented according to local traditions, customs and manners. This approach gives our projects a grass-roots outlook with a larger support and knowledge network. Our collaborative approach leverages resources to ensure that the maximum amount of each donor dollar support work on-the-ground.
Where we work: WILD’s founding roots in South Africa create a deep and rich history of work in sub-Saharan Africa. Our global presence reaches from Africa to Canada to Latin America and India – and many places in between, including our home-town of Boulder, Colorado.
WILD’s role is unique focused on people and peoples interactions with Nature. Therefore, one of the most important “places” we work is within the human heart and mind, inspiring and activating conservation through building an active relationship between people and Nature around the world.
Our Vision includes you!
Our numerous accomplishments for wilderness, wildlife and people world-wide are only possible with the support of generous donors like you. Go WILD and support wilderness world-wide by making a contribution at any level >
