What is Wilderness?
A natural landscape larger than 10,000km square with limited impact from modern technology. A part of this Earth where people often live, but where they do not destroy the natural systems or co-existing values.
What is Forever Wild?
An Australian based charity launched in 2018, Forever Wild has a bold vision spanning centuries yet to come, for nature and human society. We envision a world in which there will always be vast and wild places, rich in biological diversity and human culture. Forever Wild is acquiring land and building innovative partnerships worldwide to create vast Shared Earth Reserves that are ecologically, politically and socially sustainable.
"Only by linking the natural and human values of the remaining wilderness on our planet will we have any chance of protecting these remarkable landscapes and ensuring they play a key role in human well-being a thousand years from now". Fiachra Kearney, CEO.
How do we do work?
Forever Wild creates innovative financing mechanisms to support our very large-scale objectives. Blending philanthropy with impact investment we acquire, protect and innovate. We protect wilderness by creating ecological and social equity, and driving innovation in non-destructive economic activity. We co-design with communities, we believe in people, we believe in our Earth, and we reject wholesale corporate destruction of our planet.
And we act, because at this juncture in human history it is our actions - not our words - that count.
