Who we are
We are a small team of committed individuals bringing you inspiration & educational resources grounded in Nature.
Our mission is to help improve the health of individuals, wildlife and the planet, by inspiring people all over the world to reconnect with Nature.
How we got started
We Are Wildness was founded by Alissa in 2011 as a personal growth project. After struggling with depression and anxiety for many years, she found nature connection and living closer to the land to be instrumental in her healing process. Ever passionate about wildlife, nature and wild spaces, Alissa’s hope upon starting WAW was to create an avenue with which to inspire people to reconnect, protect and preserve both their intrinsic wildness and the wildness of the greater earth organism. That personal growth project has now grown into a beautiful collective of wild, yet modern humans who share experiences in many ways: By participation in WAWU, an online school, by reading and contributing to a diverse blog, and by connecting with other Nature lovers via a large social media community.
