Programs: The WILD Foundation addresses the urgent needs of our planet through promoting, protecting and informing the protection of our Earth's last wild places. With our network of sister and partner organizations, we work in three main program areas. Using Communications and Media we stimulate informed and inspired public action; through Wilderness Policy and Management we promote the most effective wildlands legislation and management to benefit human communities and wild-places; and, to field test our ideas and solutions on the ground, our Local Action field projects train individuals, incubate and assist organizations and provide urgently needed conservation supplies. At the center of our work is the World Wilderness Congress (WWC), the world's longest-running public environmental forum. It achieves practical results for wilderness and people by forming collaborative relationships, and convenes world leaders, top environmentalists, academics, native peoples, artists, faith leaders and people from every profession and walk of life. The WWC generates innovative ideas, initiates projects that create a real difference in communities around the world, inspires professionals and volunteers alike and sounds a call-to-action for governments and corporations. WILD9, the 9th World Wilderness Congress is now set for 6-13 November, 2009 in Merida, Mexico's Yucatan. It will focus on climate change and Latin American issues, and also cover topical conservation issues from around the globe.

Mission:
WILD is the only international organization dedicated entirely to the protection of wilderness around the globe.  Our vision - Nature Needs Half - is to protect and interconnect at least half of the planet''s land and water to sustain the health, function and diversity of all life.
