Action for Nature
Wildlife Habitats Scheme
Click for Rainforest
Nature is central to the beliefs and values of the World Pantheist Movement. But our commitment goes beyond simple belief and words. We aim to provide resources and channels through which our members can express their concern in individual and joint action, and see tangible results.
Click the links to the left for the four major areas of action.
The WPM launched its Wildlife Habitat scheme in
March 2002 when the first reserve was declared by member Sheila Rosenthal. Within the
first six weeks six members had declared reserves totalling 42 acres, located in
California, Missouri, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey and England.
Through the scheme members - and indeed non-members - can
declare a commitment to manage part or all of any land they control so as to encourage
natural biodiversity and native species. Even small areas and parts of gardens can
The National Wildlife Federation provdes technical support
through its Backyard Wildlife Habitat Scheme. Signatories receive a beautiful printed
certificate suitable for framing.

Sponsorship of conservation programs
As from May 2002 the WPM devote part of its promotional budget to sponsoring conservation projects with reputable non-profit agencies.
We will do this initially through well-established Web sites where people click in order to save acres of rainforest or other wildlife habitat. These include the Ecology Fund, Race2 Save the Rainforest, and the Rainforest Site (see links on left). The land saving each click produces is financed by the advertisers whose banners are shown on the page after the click. Periodically, as funds permit, our banner is among those shown. Our sponsorship checks are made out to the conservation agencies, so every penny goes to them directly.
In this way a significant part of members' contributions are put
to a double use:
* They directly finance conservation projects run by
reputable agencies such as the Nature Conservancy.
* They are used to promote the WPM, spread awareness of pantheism and gain new members

Since 2001 we have had a group at Ecology Fund clicking every day to save
rainforest and other wild habitats. As of July 2012 there were nearly 1300
members and we had saved a total of 90 acres.
