The thing I love most about Australia, since moving from the UK in 2009, has been having the opportunity to explore this beautiful, wild, rugged country. It saddens me when I see these places mistreated or placed in harm’s way & I love the work that For Wild Places does in protecting them. From holding major fundraising trail running events to encouraging the simple act of picking up trash on the trails, For Wild Places is making a difference. I hope to see you on the trails soon” – Lauren Beels

Nature has always provided a safe space for me to be myself. It doesn’t demand, it doesn’t judge – it just lets me be. I joined FWP to be part of a movement that actually protects nature, so that it can continue to be available to enable others to thrive when they are outdoors” – Elanor Finch

We love our partners

Got a question?

Here are some answers that might help.

1. Where does the money go?

Every cent from your membership will go straight to FWP to help fund our core operations. As a start-up we’re very reliant on amazing volunteers – and will continue to be. But protecting wild places is a long-term fight that will require financial sustainability all year round. A reliable income stream from membership will allow us to plan ahead into the future and, as we grow, expand the team to bring experienced, motivated and wild people on board, to make our impact greater.

2. Do I have to do anything as a member?

No, not if you don’t want to! Just the act of joining is a big help to us. Going forward, we may ask you for feedback or input on projects and ideas, but these additional ways to get involved will be opt-in.

3. Are there other membership options, like student or corporate?

 Yes! We’ve just launched a Collective Membership option that enables businesses and other organisations to get on board. More information here. We don’t have a student membership option, but we do run student discounts for limited periods of time. Sign up to receive our newsletter so you don’t miss out.
