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 experiencesWe 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.
