Founded by Hansjörg Wyss, a Swiss native and businessman now living in Wilson, Wyoming. The Wyss Campaign for Nature is making “a $1 billion investment to help communities, indigenous peoples, and nations conserve 30% of the planet in its natural state by 2030.” So far, only 15% is protected with national parks and wildlife refuges. Its philanthropic efforts focus on ‘Land and Preservation’, ‘Communities and Education’, and ‘Discovery and innovation’.
