We work for the WILD places, the open spaces, on land and sea,
the green and blue places, oases among our sprawling cities
We work for the resilience of species, restoring and regenerating the ecosystems so that they can thrive.
We work for the upliftment of people and communities, empowering
livelihoods that provide dignity and a future for families.
We respect the inter-connectedness of all things.

VISION & MISSION
WILDTRUST (registered as the Wildlands Conservation Trust – IT No.4329/1991/PMB) is a South African Non-Profit, Non-Government and Public Welfare Organisation, established in 2004 through the merger of two regional Trusts. It pursues the realisation of its vision of “A thriving and resilient world” through two core programmes: WILDLANDS and WILDOCEANS. The WILDLANDS’ programme focuses on terrestrial conservation and underwriting the sustainable development of the green economy, and the WILDOCEANS programme focuses on marine and coastal conservation and underwriting the sustainable development of the blue economy. The WILDTRUST’s vision is achieved through working at the interface between environmental sustainability and human wellbeing to improve livelihoods of communities and restore the ecosystems that support them. The work of the WILDTRUST encourages the employment and upskilling of the youth and the empowerment of communities to deliver a sustained and improved environmental outcome and impact.
