Keep It Wild Australia was initially developed by Darren Edwards who has a passion for the outdoors, hiking in particular. Darren started hiking in order to escape from the real world for a while. To connect with nature, switch off from the hustle and bustle of life and disconnect from technology. The further he explored, the more he could see that the world he was trying to disconnect from was increasingly invading these natural spaces.
Recreation, adventure tourism, commercialisation, extractive industries, all of these are having an impact on the spaces that we love and all of them run the risk of taking away from the psychological benefits we all receive through spending time in nature.
Keep it Wild Australia is an initiative that we hope will make a difference by supporting existing like-minded initiatives.
