Since our inception, we have always worked to keep alive the values that made but a small seed, what WILD is today: respect, for nature and for each other, integrity and community. Since our founders defied the racist policies of apartheid to save the southern white rhino from extinction, we have always tried to forge unity and collaboration around the world.
🌳 With the UN biodiversity conference, COP15, right around the corner taking place in Montreal, Canada between the 5th and 17th of December we want to make sure we’re fighting for what we always have: people and nature.
In today’s episode, you’ll be hearing from individuals who don’t only fight for nature but who fight for people and justice in hopes of a more balanced and sustainable world. This means bringing everyone to the table, hearing them out, and giving all an equal say in the solutions moving forward.
We hope they inspire you to have the strength and courage to support them in their fight to change the current trajectory humanity is on.
