Restoring balance between wildlife and human life, together.
We are the Wilder Institute, and we know it is possible to bring endangered species back from the brink. While our work is global, our roots run deep in the Albertan conservation community. Sitting on 125 acres in the heart of the city, we operate one of the oldest charities in Alberta, the Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo – a charitable wildlife conservation organization that works to fight the extinction of plants and animals worldwide. In addition to the zoo, we proudly operate the Archibald Biodiversity Centre (ABC), Canada’s largest conservation breeding and research facility. Biodiversity is declining faster than ever, and a hands-on approach is needed. We believe that taking action today, for wildlife and wild places, is the way to a better tomorrow for our planet and those who will inherit it.
This giving season, we invite you to donate to the Wilder Institute and show your support for a wilder future in which we all thrive.
