World Wildlife Fund-Australia and Tasmanian Walking Company launch Walk for Wild fundraising event series

The World Wildlife Fund-Australia (WWF-Australia) and Tasmanian Walking Company (TWC)
today officially launched the inaugural Walk for Wild fundraising event series set to depart on
8 October 2021. Centred around *four of TWC’s award-winning walks, the partnership will raise
funds for the largest and most innovative wildlife and landscape regeneration program in
Australia’s history – WWF’s Regenerate Australia.

Regenerate Australia aims to rehabilitate and restore wildlife and habitats impacted by the
2019-20 bushfires and future-proof Australia against climate disasters. Guests who join one of
the Walk for the Wild trips will have the opportunity to experience Australia’s breathtaking
wilderness areas while also supporting Regenerate Australia projects that focus on restoring
our environment and ensuring it thrives.

This is a chance for Australians to be part of a defining moment for the future, with 100 per cent of
all Walk for Wild sales donated by TWC.

Brett Godfrey, co-owner of Tasmanian Walking Company said, “Walk for Wild marks the start
of a new partnership with WWF-Australia and celebrates our ongoing commitment to inspiring
positive change in conservation. We are proud to be supporters of Regenerate Australia and
helping to restore the 19 million hectares of wilderness that burned during the 2019-20

Godfrey added, “Walk for Wild is an exciting opportunity for people to enjoy the health and
wellbeing benefits of walking in Australia’s remote wilderness areas while at the same time
knowing the full purchase price of their walk is contributing to this incredible conservation

Together, TWC and WWF-Australia will seek to educate walkers on the importance of
conservation of our wilderness areas, and support projects that have a genuine and tangible

Kathryn Birch, Senior Manager Impact Partnerships at WWF-Australia said, “We are very proud
to be working with Tasmanian Walking Company to help raise awareness and critical funds for
Australian conservation and encourage people to enjoy Australia’s incredible natural
environment. Eco-tourism, when mindful and well-managed, can have a huge positive impact
for people and nature. Our goal to Regenerate Australia can only be achieved through
collaboration with businesses, government, industry and local communities. The tourism
sector has an exciting and valuable role to play in helping to achieve this ambitious goal.”
