What Inspires Us to Do This?
It is hard to describe in words. It is something you feel. The good, the bad and the ugly. That is what drives us to take the steps to make a difference.
The impact of humans on this world reach far beyond the environmental crisis and potential cultural loss of iconic species like tigers, rhinos and whales. It is a complex and often depressing issue that can seem at times, hopeless.
Where there is help, there is hope.
The good news is we’ve also seen what’s working, the organisations, groups and individuals that are working to improve the situation. Wild Things Roam has been part of successful wildlife recovery stories ranging from southern Africa’s black rhino to Rwanda’s rare mountain gorillas. And this in turn is helping protect rich and varied ecosystems while ensuring people continue to benefit from nature.
This much is clear: we cannot afford to fail in our mission to save a living planet.
When we think of the global environmental crises, we tend to imagine a problem that is too big to tackle. However, the age-old saying “many hands make light work” cannot ring truer.
Saving wildlife and wild places is at the very heart of what we do Wild Things Roam.
We have made it our mission to find solutions that save the incredible array of life on our planet by applying the best science available, working closely with local communities and aligning with trustworthy and legitimate organisations and initiatives with experts in the field.
But our work is far from done. Humans are behind the current rate of species extinction, which is at least 100–1,000 times higher than nature intended.
