The WILD Foundation is a true hub of the global wilderness movement. More I know about them more I want to help. After helping as a volunteer I am now a part-time staff and really happy to put my expertise at work with people not only in Boulder, Colorado, but around the world. From South Africa, to India passing by England to Brazil, the WILD family is inspiring. Their approach on human-nature connection not just that nature needs but that we need nature to live is refreshing.

Convening the 8th World WIlderness Congress in Anchorage, Alaska, WILD will again convene the 9th in Merida, Mexico (WILD9) with a specific focus on climate change where young delegates will be completely integrated into and present the final talk to the Congress at large. Communications are evolving rapidly and WILD9 will be the first Congress in 35 years in both English and Spanish. The UN Conference on Conservation regularly confers with WILD regarding optimal wilderness legislation globally. In addition, WILD plays a key role in many African and American wilderness conservation efforts from aids affected orphans to extreme ice surveys to saving elephants in Mali from drought and death.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Expanding my understanding of the importance of wild, undisturbed places to the human creative soul.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Focused, compassionate, passionate about wild places, people, and plants/animals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Scale up many of its effective programs. Though it has made a strategic decision to be small, nimble, and flexible to respond rapidly to climates as they change environmentally and economically.

Ways to make it better...

Executive Director had means of forecasting his travels to Board. Currently reports after the fact. From years of traveling, his immune system is

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

longer term vision of programs begun at the Congress.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Every day I am inspired by the mission and vision of WILD to stand for those who have no current voice in choices regarding resources and riches of nature untouched.
