About Us

Founded in 2015, Wild Ecosystems Conservation Initiative works to conserve biodiversity, restore wildlands and ensure in perpetuity the ecological processes of native ecosystems.  Our values are rooted in protecting wilderness and wildlife, prioritizing the expansion of protected areas for the conservation of biodiversity.

Saving Biodiversity

We see the loss of biodiversity as the greatest crisis of our time. Species are going extinct at 1,000 to 10,000 times the natural rate and we must work to slow the loss of biodiversity.  Through the protection of large landscapes, restoration of degraded habitat and rewilding of natural ecosystems we work to preserve the planet for all species.

The task of conserving biodiversity distills down to two basic challenges, protecting it and preserving it. Protecting biodiversity entails creating parks in accordance with a systematic plan to include within their borders most or all of the species found in a region and, ultimately, in the world as a whole.
