Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Wild Quest Bay Area

A race against time to see--and save--endangered species in local parks in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Population(s) Served

Saving Sharp Park's wetlands from a money-losing, endangered species killing golf course and transforming the land into a new public park everyone can enjoy.

Population(s) Served

The California Energy commission has approved several power plants in a small area adjacent to the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge. The emissions from these power plants will be collectively significant, and will harm endangered species at the Refuge and local community health. Wild Equity is bringing conservation and justice groups together to fight these power plant proposals and make sure people and wildlife are safe from their pollution.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Wild Equity was founded to link the grassroots conservation movement and the environmental justice movement through the movements’ shared moral foundation: equity, the creation of a more just and fair world. Together we will become a powerful force that creates a healthy and sustainable global community for all. Wild Equity accomplishes this by working on projects that highlight and redress the inequitable relationships across our human communities while improving our relationship to the lands in which we live.

Wild Equity implements appropriate strategies to achieve success in each of our campaigns, but the strategy may be different depending on the circumstances. Typical strategies include collaboration with allied organizations, public and public official education, litigation, grassroots organizing, legislation, and public media.

Wild Equity is able to aid in collaboration, education, litigation, organizing, drafting legislation, and media efforts.

To date we've made several positive steps towards our goals:

* We've passed legislation and won a lawsuit to stop Sharp Park Golf Course from killing endangered species and draining funds away from neighborhood parks and community services.

* We've won a $2,000,000 settlement against a power plant in Antioch that will emit pollution that endangers local community healthy and the continued existence of three endangered species.

* We've made thousands of contacts with Bay Area residents and disadvantage youth through our signature experiential education project, Wild Quest Bay Area.

* Our Board of Directors has grown to six members, our budget has grown significantly every year during an era that many nonprofits have been forced to close, and our earned media record includes over 100 stories on the web, over the air, and in print.
