77% Global wilderness, and many of the societal values it contained, is gone forever

View some of our spectacular images and video showcasing Forever Wild's landscapes.

93 The number of recently extinct animal and plants in Australia alone as landscapes industrialize. Untold cultural and historical markers, and diverse economic design opportunities are gone with them.

Wilderness has so much value to so many people, and together we can harness and protect all those values.

Industrial activity across the planet is responsible for the destruction of global wilderness at a staggering rate. But we can use wilderness wisely if we choose to.

See how we support people and families, community well-being and sustainable wilderness economies including agriculture, while keeping our wilderness intact.

For many people to be able to reconnect with the last wild places on Earth is only a distant dream.

Forever Wild is an organisation like no other - we directly support the needs of human communities in vast natural landscapes, working with a diverse range of partners to support healthy societies.

Gazing at the night sky led to some of humanities’ oldest stories, greatest journeys, and proudest achievements. Yet stars that once guided us to new lands and formed stories for our children around a camp fire are lost to many.

Forever Wild will preserve areas where an untainted night sky will be forever accessible to humans to gaze upon, to connect with our past and keep the spirit of exploration alive.

Our reserves will be where nightfall once again becomes a time of wonder.

400,000 Known Australian species yet to be named and described

Despite hundreds of millions of dollars spent on conservation, species are still blinking out. The landscapes are simply not large enough, the thinking not ambitious enough. Reserves must be at least 10,000 km². A single property in Australia can be larger than 6,000km².
