Working Together for a More Abundant Future

Wild Earth Allies joins forces with local organizations and individuals to protect the wildlife and habitats that are so vital to our global biodiversity and sustainability.

Our mission is to protect vital areas of our natural world for the benefit of wildlife, habitats, and people by inspiring collaborative action. Our organization is built on important values—optimism, cultural respect, shared learning, and integrity—and we run lean, which has earned us the top nonprofit ranking from Charity Navigator for many years.

We envision a world where wildlife flourishes in healthy ecosystems that sustain us all.

Our Story

We’re driven by a mission to determine the most effective and lasting ways possible to protect threatened wildlife and habitats.

Our approach begins by identifying globally important wildlife and habitats that can be conserved through targeted collaborative action. Next we foster local partnerships that result in lasting conservation impact. By limiting bureaucracy and overhead, we maximize impact on the ground.

Founded in 1981, we have been proud to collaborate with many talented partners to protect globally important biodiversity together. In 2016, we recognized an opportunity to deepen our work internationally and to begin conservation work here in the United States under the new name of Wild Earth Allies.

With equal parts optimism and purpose, we’re eager to build on our strong track record as we continue to pursue cutting-edge initiatives that promise a better future for the planet and everything that lives on it.

Wild Earth Allies is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization; EIN # 04-2730954.
