WildiZe philosophy is grounded in the belief that humanity must be in balance with, not separate from, nature and the all-encompassing laws of life. Addressing human needs and linking them with the needs of wildlife and the environment is critical to the long-term conservation of our Earth's diversity and resources.
WildiZe supports projects that promote the overall healing of our planet's ecological balance, encourage cultural exchange and scientifically proven life-practices, increase the health of our planet's wildlife and further our human population's skill-sets to cope with day-to-day life challenges. Each of our grantees represents a component toward accomplishing these goals.
Public involvement and action in a project can make conservation attainable on many levels benefiting people, animals and the planet.
