Congratulations to Harvey Locke, Strategic Advisor for The WILD Foundation, for being awarded the Fred M. Packard International Parks Merit Award — one of the world’s highest honors for conservation — for his work!
Harvey said in a statement, “Conservation is a team sport. I share this with the many friends and colleagues who form part of the Y2Y community and those at CPAWS, The WILD Foundation, and the IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas.”

"Coexisting with predators—with their big, sharp teeth and long, scary claws—is therefore best thought of as a psychological problem rather than an economic one. Teaching people about their own reactions to the big bad wolf might be more effective than simply teaching people about the wolves themselves."

How much space do you think should be allocated to nature, and why?

As of this World Rhino Day, South Africa is on track to lose as many rhinos this year as it did in 2013 — if not more. To ensure their survival, we need rhinos to win!

WILD has joined forces with the International Rhino Foundation, Save the Rhino International and the Asian Rhino Project to compete against the greatest poaching crisis this century- learn more about our #TeamRhino partnership and how you can get involved: www.wild.org/blog/team-rhino/

Danger is ever-present for elephants in Africa. Fortunately the desert elephants of Mali have been shepherded through the recent conflict, protected by fully-engaged communities. 

See how our Mali Elephant Project is working with local communities to protect the livelihoods of the elephants and the people in the area: www.wild.org/blog/rocky-road-to-reconciliation/
