Wilderness Economies

We are building an investment fund to directly support ecologically and socially non-detrimental economic activities in and around our reserves. Forever Wild actively supports a balance between people's livelihoods and ecological wilderness values. We directly enable job creation, for example through low-impact tourism and agriculture, and we generate landscape management partnerships with people in remote areas.

Wilderness experiences

We engage with specialist partners, local Indigenous and non-indigenous people to develop immersive wilderness experiences. In turn, these experiences fit into Forever Wild’s core Human Spirit program to reconnect people to the natural world. The economic benefits of these activities can be significant, generating goods and services, jobs, alternative and adjunct livelihood options for people in remote areas.

Tourism experiences can vary widely, from simply star gazing, ultra-low impact camping, photography, hunting and fishing, or understanding the calls, signs and other intricate secrets of the wilderness.

Wilderness & Farming

Forever Wild does not support industrial agriculture. We do support low impact food production on suitable areas of our Shared Earth Reserves, and we work directly with farmers in isolated parts of Australia who want to nurture the incredible natural values on their lands. There are many large properties (called stations) in the vast north that still retain intact and remarkable wild places that are important to the whole of humanity, Some of these magnificent stations are home to species found nowhere else, and given their immense carbon storage are critical for the well-being of this planet.
