Indigenous Cultures and People

The WILD Foundation has a rich history of working relationships with Indigenous cultures and people.

 The WILD Foundation and our partners in The Wilderness Network share a common history – one created by a white game-ranger and his Zulu mentor. Dr. Ian Player and Magqubu Ntombela knew that taking people into wild-nature to experience wild-ness is the best way to connect people to one-another and to foster a relationship between people and nature.

Through on-the-ground field projects, art and culture for nature conservation, publishing, training, and the World Wilderness Congress, we invoke and honor our African Roots. The African wilderness is humanity’s birthplace and our common heritage.

Just as it is our common heritage, wild-nature is also an essential part of a healthy, modern human society.
