The Wilderness Foundation protects and sustains African wilderness and wild lands through holistic and integrated conservation, social and education programmes.
The Wilderness Foundation has been a pioneer in using wilderness as a positive force for social change in South Africa. To date, we have taken over one hundred thousand political, business and community leaders, as well as historically disadvantaged youth, through our programmes, which allow participants to experience wild nature.
Our work in wilderness heals and sustains the human psyche and we have been leaders in the field of creating an understanding of the link between ecosystem health and human well-being.
Our work is concentrated in four main areas:
• Social Upliftment through wilderness
• Experiential Education in wilderness
• Wilderness Management
• Wilderness Advocacy
