Mission Statement

Building strong communities that respect and protect nature for the benefit of all life. We recognize that there are two types of conservation programs, and both are equally essential for lasting protections that sustain nature for the benefit of all life on Earth. The first kind of program is on-the-ground teams defending critically threatened species and places from imminent destruction. Only through such mud-on-boots actions can we ensure that there is a wild world left to protect in the future. The problem is that interventions like these are costly and increasingly difficult to sustain for the long haul. That is why a second approach to conservation is needed, one that counters the root causes harming nature which includes a lack of respect for Earth’s wildlife and wilderness, and lack of coordination for their protection. This is what WILD does best.

About This Cause

For over 40 years WILD has assembled leaders from all sectors of society and from all over the world to come together for the twin purposes of forging strong policy communities with shared goals and objectives for the protection of nature and building respect for Earth’s wilderness. Putting respect for nature at the center of the leadership community and stewarding coordinated action for her protection is what we do best. We invite you to join us as we continue to implement proven solutions that educate world leaders and grassroots decision-makers on the necessity and wonder of Earth’s remaining wild places. Your support builds powerful communities that enact new and higher quality protections for nature. Leaders need help working together to protect Earth’s wilderness. Saving Earth’s wild and irreplaceable web of life is too big for any one government or organization to solve on its own. Join WILD and help build momentum for strong communities and strong leadership that protects wild nature for the benefit of all life on Earth. Please view our 2022 Annual Report:
