Behind The Scenes
Why We started
Wildgoose was founded by our CEO, Stuart Gander, a British military veteran, with the goal of creating a connection between the events and experiences in Wales and the anti-poaching efforts in Africa. In partnership with Wild Tomorrow Fund in Kwazulu Natal, Wildgoose provides equipment, training, awareness, and support to anti-poaching rangers. By offering a range of experiences, events, glamping, and raffles, Wildgoose aims to establish a sustainable link between Wales and Africa and contribute to the preservation of wildlife, habitats, and endangered human trafficking victims. Join us in supporting this noble cause through our unique and thrilling offerings.
Wild Tomorrow Fund
We face the extinction of one million species in our lifetimes. But there is still hope. The solution to the extinction crisis lies in the expansion of natural habitats in threatened wild places. We must enlarge and protect the spaces devoted to the natural world in order to save the amazing variety of life on our planet – called biodiversity.
Elephants, rhinos, lions, giraffe and other amazing wild animals in Southern Africa are struggling. The poaching crisis, diminishing reserve budgets, and a lack of wild space are all having disastrous effects. Wild Tomorrow is committed to helping in the most effective ways possible. To do that, we ask the people whose job it is to protect the animals – the reserve managers, anti-poaching units and ecologists – what help they need most.
PROTECTING, RESTORING AND RE-WILDING HABITAT
We cannot save elephants without saving termites. We cannot save pangolins without saving ants. And we cannot save any of them without saving wild areas from destruction. Everything within an ecosystem is connected in marvelously complex ways. And they all need a safe place to call home.
We protect, restore and re-wild land in strategic, ecologically important areas. But we don’t stop there – we look to neighboring properties to join our land together so as to make much larger reserves and wildlife corridors.
We understand that for long-term sustainability everyone must benefit from conserving wild spaces. This includes the people living in the poor rural communities that surround our protected areas. Our programs aim to not only improve their lives, but reduce their impact on natural resources while increasing support of conservation practices
