At the moment we are about to found an international non-profit organisation as the legal base for The Wildliving Project.
The next steps may include the foundation of a non-profit endowment association as the sponsorship for the work of Wildliving.
We are thankful for any help and if you feel you may be able to support here please contact us :)
Currently we are a small team of five keeping the organisation of Wildliving alive. Though there are many more people both supporting and carrying this vision. We are grateful for the extended circle which is somewhere in the background and for everyone who will come and join when the time is right :)

Andris Fågelviskare, the "Birdwhisperer", was born and raised in a small village in Sweden. From the start he carried a deep longing to connect with animals of all kinds. From gathering insects as temporary pets, to observing the birds, hedgehogs and squirrels who lived in the garden. As he grew older he started to venture further out into the surrounding landscapes, learning on his own the habits of the different animals, and how to track them. During this time he learned to imitate the calls of more than a hundred different bird species, later earning him the nickname “Birdwhisperer”. Through the connection with the animals and the landscape, he started seeing the world with new eyes. He experienced a feeling of home-coming, of remembering a different life. It took him on a journey of discovering what is beyond our “civilized” society.
To witness the rapid deforestation around him and how wild creatures were treated either as pest or resources to extract, he grew increasingly worried for the future. In the eyes of the wildlife he encountered, he saw the vision of a very different landscape. A place were nature is left to care for itself. And where people live as an intrinsic part of that ecosystem, similar to how our ancestors once lived. Ever since, this vision guided his actions. In the later years, he grew a relationship with a wild wolf-pack, trusting him enough to sometimes let him come close to them. To him the wolf is a great teacher for us to remember our connection to our wildness, to remember our belonging with all life.
His expertise lays in understanding the connections within ecosystems - to communicate with the animals and to read the
landscape, understanding what it needs to regain balance and health. He wishes to serve as a bridge between humanity and nature, and inspire others to connect with the wild around
