The WILDTRUST vision is for a ‘thriving and resilient world’.

Inspired by the interconnectedness of all things on this planet, the WILDTRUST objectives remain focused on the principle to continuously strive towards restoring the building blocks of our unique and diverse biodiversity. Added to this, it is imperative that the communities that live and benefit from these natural resources are able to actively participate in the sustainable conservation efforts in order to safeguard and be custodians of the nature we aim to protect.

In order to realise our vision, the WILDTRUST is dedicated to ‘RE-WILDING’ our LANDS and OCEANS to a state that can support the lives of humans and the millions of living creatures we share the planet with.

Through our innovative programs, the WILDTRUST is committed to bringing back the balance and reconnect wildlife, nature, people and spaces that can begin to reverse and possibly halt the damage that has been done to our environment while empowering future generations for a better tomorrow, for a just and healthy planet.

Empowers Africa has partnered with the WILDTRUST in order to provide a cost effective solution to fundraising in the United States by acting as their fiscal sponsor. As an established 501(c)(3), we are able to accept donations from U.S. donors and grant the funds directly to their projects.
