About Misty Forest

 
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.

Example of a wilderness protection certificate

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!

Impressions from the temperate rainforest

The ebb and flow of the tide determine the rhythm of the land and its inhabitants. 

  • Among seaweed and kelp, a playful mink pursues its favorite food, abalone.

  • A deer on the rocky beach

  • 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.

  • A rare coastal wolf on beach patrol

  • 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.

  • A bald eagle hunts for fish in the sea with a sharp eye.
