"There is just one hope of repulsing the tyrannical ambition of civilization to conquer every niche on the whole earth. That hope is the organization of spirited people who will fight for the freedom of the wilderness." ~Robert Marshall

​Dave Foreman, TRI Founder

Support Bold Vision... and Action!

Without bold vision and hope, we conservationists are rudderless in a stormy political sea.  The Rewilding Institute is committed to inspiring conservation work with vision and hope.

I am convinced that we conservationists will be more successful only if we have a positive vision to work toward, and if we are buoyed by hope.  Hope is essential. Without it, conservationists and the public we wish to convince become distraught, depressed, and without the energy and will to defend wild Nature.  Without a vision, we are merely parrying attacks, with no sense of what we are working for, and with no strategy of how to get there.

The Rewilding Institute and I are committed to doing our best to inspire conservationists and new allies with a bold, hopeful vision.  I hope you will be able to help us do exactly that.

–Dave Foreman

Why Your Support Matters So Much...

The Rewilding Institute is largely dependent on donations from individuals.  What we do, along with our straight talk, does not appeal to most foundations. There are a few exceptions—the Weeden Foundation, EMA Foundation, and Patagonia, Inc.  Otherwise, our income comes from individuals, small family foundations, book sales, and speaking honoraria. We also have been greatly helped by in-kind donations, such as design, maintenance, and promotion of this website, Joe Adair’s design of our logo, and the volunteer work of our Fellows and friends.

The organizational philosophy of The Rewilding Institute is to stay small, lean, and focused, with minimum overhead, staff, and bureaucracy, so it can better concentrate on its priorities and on working with partners.

Because of our approach, individual contributions go a long way.  Your support of The Rewilding Institute will pay off.

We are incorporated and have 501(c)3 charitable status as North American Wilderness Recovery and do business as The Rewilding Institute.
