Best of the Wild

WCS envisions a world in which people value and embrace the diversity of life, live sustainably with wildlife, and ensure the integrity of the natural world.

We focus our conservation efforts on the best of the wild—landscapes and seascapes that are rich in biological diversity and where long-term conservation of wildlife and the natural processes they depend upon can be achieved. Our global portfolio of 75 Best of the Wild sites, including those profiled here, gives us a leading role in saving some of the wildest places that remain on Earth.
