Today, we are reimagining our futures. We’re imagining a healthy climate that will host thriving communities and vibrant ecosystems, where governments prioritise food security, affordable housing, and community care. Overwhelming issues like the current climate crisis, human-wildlife conflicts and decolonisation can be intimidating and so it is a true honour and privilege to remain engaged on a matter so close to our hearts.

When citizens and their representatives in government fail to place a high value on wilderness as a resource in itself, then its disappearance – especially in reasonably accessible locations – is swift and certain.
