The Wild Forest Foundation is a not-for-profit environmental organisation based in the capital of the German state of North-Rhine Westfalia, Düsseldorf. It is an independent foundation under civil law operating under the name
Wild Forest Foundation
The shared aim of its founders is to preserve a viable natural environment for our children to inherit. Our particular goal is to protect the rainforests of our planet and the people and animals for whom they provide a home.
Our work in Sri Lanka has revealed a need for responsible action and a rapid response. The war in large parts of Sri Lanka has led to the complete destruction of many people’s livelihoods. In many cases, the local people have been forced to destroy forests and their natural environment simply in order to survive. It was for this reason that we decided something had to be done and so we set up the Wild Forest Foundation. Now you too can help, either by making a donation or becoming a sponsor, and support us with our work on the ground. Your donations go directly towards our projects and benefit the people of Sri Lanka. And as transparency is very important to the Wild Forest Foundation, you are welcome to come and see our sustainable projects in action. You may also like to know that the Wild Forest Foundation acts in full compliance with planet-friendly ideals. We preserve the natural environment in all its diversity – and safeguard it for future generations.
In a true spirit of sustainability, we are not only involved in protecting the environment but also in helping local people to safeguard their livelihood. Our tireless commitment to these aims has enabled us, for example, to gain the support of hunters and poachers – who would until now have made a living by hunting rare and threatened animals – and make them aware of what we are trying to achieve. Today, they too support the aims and objectives of the Wild Forest Foundation and, in their new role as gamekeepers and rangers, they now have a secure livelihood. This is also thanks to you. In return, they work to protect this unique and fascinating natural environment and its remarkable species diversity. What’s more, as ambassadors of the Wild Forest ‘philosophy’ they take the ideas and aims of the foundation out into the wider population – which means the movement is continuing to grow.
You can help us through giving a donation or taking out sponsorship, safe in the knowledge that your money will be going directly towards our project in Muthiyankadu (Sri Lanka). Becoming a sponsor or making a cash donation is an effective way for people who share our concern about these issues to make a contribution and be responsible for saving one, or indeed many, square metres of rain forest for one year. For as little as 9,99 euros you can help save the rain forests of Sri Lanka by planting a tree and in return for your commitment you will receive one of four different seals – depending on the size of that commitment – for unlimited use in your PR communications.
