Wildhood Foundation is a Swedish based nonprofit organisation fighting poaching and trafficking of wild animals in Africa. Wildhood was founded in 2016 as a reaction to the escalating poaching crises with the objective to save and protect our planet’s most threatened species from extinction in their natural habitats.
Founder and CEO is Filippa Tarras-Wahlberg. She comes from the world of marketing and PR and she has been devoted to conservation since her time working at a chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya 2003.
”It was not difficult to fall in love with Africa. I remember waking up when the sun was raising over the beautiful landscape next to Mount Kenya with all of the iconic African species living side by side. A magic world where humans are only guests! The threat against our wildlife today is severe and the fact that many species might be gone within our lifetime made me realize it’s time to act. Out from a dream, and an idea that everything is possible, I started Wildhood Foundation. A small charity with big dreams and one goal – to protect and save threatened species from extinction in the wild. Before it’s too late! I simply refuse to live in a world where elephants, rhinos, lions, pangolins, great apes and giraffes no longer exist in the wild. A reality which is sadly within sight. No one can do everything but I believe everyone can do something and together we can make this world a happier place for all lives. Today, tomorrow and for generations to come!
