IAMWILD is the future of conservation

We believe Art & Beauty have the power to
Create Conversation, Foster Collaboration
and Transform Conservation.


WHO WE ARE

IAMWILD is a global platform
for transforming conservation

We are creating a new sustainable business model for the protection of wild ecosystems around the world: driven by experience; embedded in culture & collaboration; powered by commerce.

Driven by Experience

The IAMWILD Mobile Museum is an immersive multi-sensory experience that takes visitors through 24 hours in the life of Sable Island.  It will highlight over 100 images and videos of the Wild Horses of Sable Island as captured by Roberto Dutesco, as well as interactive projections and virtual reality experience.  Designed by BEMaa Studio Milan and built in Bridgeport, Connecticut the mobile museum is built as a fast-deploying, low-impact and sustainable single pod - that can travel and be combined in any number to create a bigger experience.

Embedded in Culture & Collaboration

IAMWILD is a global platform of participation and collaboration for artists, creators and forward thinkers. It is a place where leaders come together to raise awareness for all that is wild – The first expression of this platform is through the unique experience of the Horses of Sable Islandas photographed by Roberto Dutesco. Our intention is to extend this concept further to highlight other endangered species around the world, and integrate work done by other artists.

Powered by Commerce.

The IAMWILD platform includes the IAMWILD Gallery, the mobile museum, films, books, merchandise, licensing partnerships with brands and retailers, eCommerce, web, mobile and social touch points. By shifting the model away from donations to art, merchandise and experience, we create a new paradigm for conservation initiatives and make it easier for all to take action.

Transformation starts with action and just as important education. Our contributions support three main causes:
- Direct donations to local and global charitable organizations focused on conservation
- Building schools in developing countries, like the Wild Horses of Sable Island kindergarten in Piyungan, Indonesia
- Creating wildlife education programs for the next generation of leaders

So wear IAMWILD and start the conversation that will transform how we protect all that is wild.
