"Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect." Chief Joseph
Africa is the heart of WildiZe Foundation. We have been supporting wildlife conservation and community development projects throughout sub-Saharan Africa for more than a decade and are proud of what we have accomplished. We have seen the positive impacts that can come from a small investment of resources in the right hands. At the same time, across Africa wildlife numbers continue to drop and communities continue to struggle. We see a tremendous need to expand the reach of our innovative approach and are embarking on a revitalized platform and vision.
We at WildiZe believe that to truly promote effective conservation, our work needs to be driven by the needs and ideas of the communities we work with, and that any actions taken need to be culturally and ecologically appropriate. We support projects that promote conservation through lifelong education, environmental regeneration, research on and protection of wildlife, sustainable income opportunities, and the application of appropriate agricultural technologies.
Imagine an Africa where there is a sustainable relationship between people and wildlife. Imagine an Africa where agricultural practices regenerate the earth instead of degrading this one planet that is our only home. Imagine an Africa where the children of today can achieve whatever dreams they have for their tomorrows.
This is the Africa we see as we look ahead - an Africa full of hope and promise - and it is toward this vision that we dedicate our efforts and funding.
Imagine our world without the diversity and beauty of wildness - "armchair" safaris from living room TVs our only glimpse of a world past, our children asking where all the wildlife. Nature's bounty and diverse cultures have gone. Imagine the things you can do to help change that picture!
We have only one Earth.
If WE don't care, Who will?
