Rare coastal wolves, nimble otters and mysterious sundew in the forest marsh - the temperate rainforest of the Northwest Coast is a wild treasure. With Wilderness International, you can protect this diverse habitat forever.
In the rhythm of ebb and flow
As the fog of the rugged Nordic coast lifts, islands appear in the sea, then disappear again. The cry of a bald eagle pierces through the haze. An otter slips out of its burrow between the giant roots of the jungle and glides silently into the sea. Then it curiously sticks its head out of the water.
On the online map you can see all the areas that the Misty Forest currently covers, as well as their location on the globe. There you will find our current aerial photos and you can also see which areas are already permanently protected through sponsorships.
New pieces of land are added on a regular basis. Our goal is to protect as large a contiguous habitat as possible.

What motivated me to join WI, and what continues to convince me, is the directness of the work. Instead of expensive awareness campaigns, WI actually protects unique wilderness areas. And not only the how, but also the what is sound. Areas for protection are selected based on acute threat, ecological importance, or strategic location. All of this can be tracked by anyone using geo-coordinates. It can't get more transparent than that!
We show you where your donation goes. Exactly to the square meter.

In the sea, otters hunt for mussels and snails.
Nestled in soft layers of ancient sphagnum moss grows rare long-leaved sundew, its nectar drops glistening in a rare sunbeam. In the silence of the bog, it lures flies into its trap with its sticky tentacles.

The gnarled, old trees defy the harsh weather of the north coast. In the shelter of their thicket, otters can enjoy their seafood in peace, fertilizing the forest floor with the minerals from the shells.
