About Us

In our modern lives, we are increasingly removed from nature

We spend more time indoors and in front of screens than ever before, and fewer of us live in rural areas. Most of us don’t farm our own food or even garden around our homes. The urban areas in which we tend to live are increasingly devoid of biodiversity.

As we lose touch with the natural world, we lose our emotional connections to it. We stop caring for and preserving our local environment, and in turn we lose our natural places and the species that call them home.

But we need nature.

Science continues to demonstrate the far-reaching benefits of nature for our mental and physical wellbeing. Reduced depression, anxiety, aggression and symptoms of ADHD. Improved mood, concentration, immune health and feelings of fulfilment. Plus, the many social benefits that spending time in nature can provide.

We are Australia’s first nature connection charity.

Remember The Wild seeks to bring experiences of the natural world back into our lives, for the benefit of both the environment and ourselves. Dedicated to improving public access to nature, we reconnect communities with the local environment and help people remember why the wild matters.

We tell stories. 

Storytelling is a powerful way of helping people find a connection to something. Through nature filmmaking, podcasts, written publications and social media, we tell stories of the natural world around us so that you can connect in a way that is meaningful and relevant.

 

We help people to access nature.

We understand that people want to access and connect with nature in different ways. Through environmental festivals, educational activities, and community-based programs, we aim to provide a multitude of ways that people can access the natural environment. We also share knowledge through our written and video content, highlighting new places to explore and new ways you can learn to connect with nature.

 

We do research.

Alongside many of our projects and initiatives, we conduct research to assess how effective we are at fostering nature connection, and to better understand the ways our audiences connect with nature.
