A Glimpse of Wild Hope

magazine cover

Today, at a time when species are vanishing faster than the natural rate of extinction, it can be easy to lose hope for our Earth’s future.

When Kathryn Arnold and Jane Palecek came together to curate Wild Hope magazine, they wanted to paint a different picture in people’s mind. Their goal was to inspire people to get involved in protecting other species with whom we share this planet.

The mission of the magazine is to share wildlife conservation success stories by individuals who are working on nature’s front lines to preserve Earth’s biodiversity.

With vivid and personal photography and life changing stories of experiences in the natural world, Wild Hope magazine takes us inside Earth’s thriving biodiversity and best kept stories – from the largest marine mammal rehabilitation hospital to the story of hope and redemption from a moon bear sanctuary in China.

Discover your wildest hope inside their latest print publication, Volume 2, just released.

Wild Hope is co-created by naturalists, conservationists, wildlife rehabilitators, veterinarians, biologists, ecologists, nature writers, photographers and artists.
