Protecting our planet and people.77% of Earth's 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, cultures, communities and livelihoods.

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

And interwoven with that remarkable biological diversity are untold cultural and historical markers, the identity of entire communities, and diverse economic design opportunities. When we destroy wilderness, we destroy so much that is irreplaceable.

Wilderness has the potential to mean so much to so many people. We work with societies to build on all the ways they identify with our planet. This is how, together, we create truly remarkable and valuable places!

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.

LEARN HOW WE DIRECTLY SUPPORT individuals and families, community well-being and sustainable economies including agriculture, while keeping wilderness intact.

WORKING WITH OUR COMMUNITIES AND BROADER SOCIETIES. 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.

THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE. 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 Shared Earth Reserves will be where nightfall once again becomes a time of wonder.

We know we can produce food, underpin livelihoods and support communities while protecting wilderness landscapes.

Despite hundreds of millions of dollars spent on conservation, species are still blinking out. We need to work at scale, and find the right balance. Wilderness reserves must be at least 10,000 km².
