Wild Forests and Fauna

Wild Forests and Fauna (WildFF) addresses landscape-scale conservation issues in globally important forests. We are a diverse network of science and business professionals who, together with local community leaders, implement place-based solutions that connect stakeholders, build capacity in local communities, and propel ideas into action.

We believe what makes WildFF different is our investment in communities living on the frontlines of threatened forests. There are many local leaders and organizations eager to improve their communities in a sustainable way, yet lack the resources and connections to make a significant change. We take the time to understand the culture and local traditions and how it may translate to capacity building and economic opportunity. Communities who find a balance between healthy land use and meeting economic needs is what will keep forests–their homes–intact for future generations.
