Forever Wild protects some of the Earth’s last great wildernesses for societal well-being, for biological diversity and its evolutionary potential, for our cultural record and economic values - places where we allow ourselves to be inspired!

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 ecological and social enterprise, a charity and a tax deductible recipient launched in Australia 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.

Forever Wild is underpinned by a powerful economic model that enables private investment and philanthropy. We are one of the few organisations worldwide that have successfully created the opportunity for private investment to support species protection at large scale.

"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.
