Our Story


Wild Green Future was founded by the scientists, environmental educators, natural resource professionals, and veterinarians behind the humor group Wild Green Memes for Ecological Fiends. As the group’s social media channels grew from a niche group of friends to a global community of about 750,000 people, we realized we could channel the energy of nature enthusiasts into conservation.


We started Wild Green Future in 2019 to provide support for grassroots organizations on the frontlines of conservation through community fundraising. Our annual fundraising event has supported tortoise and land conservation in Florida, helped ensure the sustainability of the Brazil nut harvest in the Peruvian Amazon, contributed to emergency relief for cold stunned sea turtles in Texas, and provided microgrants for wildlife habitat restoration across the United States. 


The opportunity to do such far-reaching and impactful work is made possible by the dedication of wildlife enthusiasts across the internet and by the surprisingly powerful tools at our disposal. With the variety of information and technology accessible just from a computer or smartphone, many more people have the ability to change the world for the better than ever before.


Together we can all help to create a wild, green future.

Our Approach

We work to connect the online wildlife enthusiasts with real-world conservation efforts through irreverent, educational memes and crowdsourced fundraising.

Every project we support has at least one of two goals: to conserve and sustain the biodiversity of life on Earth, and to affirm the rights of its people to a healthy environment by supporting their efforts to increase the ecological security of their communities. Environmental problems are ultimately economic problems, and the goals of environmental sustainability and human wellbeing are inseparably linked.

We work with promising, small nonprofits which focus on either of these causes, and are especially interested in those which work directly to benefit both. We focus on projects that create systemic improvements with quantifiable, qualitatively positive results, rather than one-off changes or stopgap measures, so that our impact may magnify over time.  Our focus on funding well-defined projects for the mutual benefit of humans and nature allows limited funds to have an outsized impact for communities, human and ecological alike.
