We restore and protect wild spaces through analysis, access and action.


Some of the most difficult areas to access on this planet are also the most pristine and rewarding.  Unfortunately in many cases they are also the most fragile.  Human waste somehow manages to infiltrate these areas, even when humans themselves have a hard time following. Thunderbeard realizes the importance of maintaining wild spaces, because it is impossible to find serenity in a natural environment while surrounded by reminders of those who were there before you.


“I’m an unabashed, shameless conservationist. I know everyone doesn’t have my resources, but I say don’t worry, do things to the best of your ability because you’ll find it rewarding and helpful and it’s paying rent for living on the planet. So just do it. Just do it.”
— Doug Tompkins
