Part III of our New WILD Story is now complete and our team is thrilled to share this third and final piece that pulls it all together: a brand new online presence for our story going forward. WILD has accomplished much in the past 40+ years with the support of many friends and partners around the world. We felt it was time for our website to better represent our present-day work and spirit, and provide a clean map to explore anew.
Our website enables us to tell the stories of people who are making a difference in WILD ways. True to our adventurous spirit, WILD’s Shay Sloan (Program Director of the Indigenous & Community Lands & Seas program) and the WILD-supported Walking Water team just completed a 180-mile pilgrimage from California’s Mono Lake to Owens Lake, crossing a drought-stricken landscape that sorely needs to be regenerated. The trek was the first phase of a three-year (literally on-the-ground) project to bring together the voices of the many peoples of the Eastern Sierra and Los Angeles watersheds.Through storytelling, knowledge-sharing and inclusive dialogue, the team hopes to catalyze new water solutions for the people and wild nature that count on it.
Protecting through connecting. This is how we work.
And while we think our approach to conservation is unique, we’re also striving to be innovative with our communications. The web platform we’ve created is now visually appealing on smartphones and tablets, as well as on larger computer screens, thanks to the creative and technical expertise of Alex Wardi of Rose Owl, LLC. We’ve updated our content and improved our site navigation so it’s easier for our viewers to read about WILD’s history, our on-the-ground projects, ways to get involved, and how to add your voice to the conversation. We’ve simplified our text and added in some beautiful visuals to help guide you through our work.
In case you missed Parts I and II, here’s a quick recap:
Part I: We updated our logo
Our updated design continues to demonstrate our native roots in Africa with a fresh new Erythrina leaf design, modern font, and lively green color. The Erythrina remains our symbol of wilderness. Read about the process >
Part II: We created a video to tell the Story of WILD
This short video energetically shares WILD’s 40+ year story of protecting through connecting: wilderness, wildlife and people. We’ll let the video speak for itself- take two minutes to watch this abbreviated but thorough chronicle of the WILD Foundation! Watch the video >
You folks rock!
