Yes, 1 million acres! By 2024 we are confident that we will have expanded our Western Deserts landscape to 1 MILLION ACRES. We have a number of strategies in play, including working towards acquiring another 560,000 acres and developing programs on adjacent land wilderness land.
We know that simply creating more protected areas is not good enough, and will also never be enough to manage our climate challenges. While they are definitely important the scale is limited and does not acknowledge that we all share one Earth.
Therefore, as a socio-environmental enterprise, a great deal of Forever Wild's focus is on creating positive feedback loops from wilderness to society as tools to protect those wilderness areas. Unless we scale up efforts in a way that explicitly identifies human society, local economies and the environment as components of a whole, we will not succeed.
The granite rock above, photographed in the Western Deserts, is a superb example of the flow we need to create, even where the problem is hard to tackle! We all live here together, and we have no choice except to figure out how to create our own fully interconnected planet.
Thank you to all our donors We blend all donations with impact investment and so each $5 actually supports between 5 to 10 acres of wilderness!! Now THAT is making every dollar count.
Best wishes from the Forever Wild Team, Australia.
