About Wilder Institute
The Wilder Institute is a leading authority on wildlife conservation, reintroducing threatened species to the wild and empowering communities to conserve their own natural resources to positively impact both nature and people.
Take and inspire action to sustain wildlife and wild places
Canada’s leader in wildlife conservation
Using innovative science, our teams are working to save threatened and endangered species and return them to the wild, where our planet needs them to be. Our conservation expertise is in conservation translocations and community conservation, where we collaborate with community members to positively impact both nature and local communities.
The Wilder Institute collaborates with local and global partners to develop science-based solutions that help wildlife and people. We aim to make a difference by working with landowners, local communities, researchers, and other conservation organizations around the world. We engage with governments to develop policies and practices that can yield scalable benefits on national and international levels.
Few of us will ever have a chance to impact the course of history. But together, we might just be able to. Every animal we release and every community we work to support begins with you. We’ll bring an evidence-based approach to develop solutions and we invite you to bring your passion to join us in our journey to protect biodiversity.
Our passionate team holds a broad range of expertise in biology, conservation, international relations, and policy to make the world a better place for all living things. Learn more about the people who are helping ensure the best possible outcomes for wildlife and people.
Knowledge is Power, When it is Shared
Every year the Wilder Institute publishes ground breaking scientific research papers that nourish conservation projects worldwide to ensure that species at risk and habitats do not perish. And in fact thrive. We look forward to sharing the knowledge we gain through our research and collaboration with communities.
