Our Story / Vision
We want to expose young people to the wonder and power of the natural environment, and to use wilderness experiences as metaphors for personal transformation.
Wild Earth is very different from many schools you have heard about, we take on fewer students, so each student has a lot of quality time with the instructors and the teachings.
This is not a 'SAS survival school' but a paleolithic 'hunter gatherer' based school.
Also its a school that is deeply woven with indigenous wisdom and spirit work. We put a great emphasis on the spirit skills that are also completely aligned with the physical skills, you cannot have one without the other we believe, and thats how these teachings have been passed down to us , from an Apache elder /shaman, who also couldn't emphasis this enough .
We aim to give you and the children a teaching system that will get them and you to think for yourselves,we will be there as guides to show you the way , but in the end its up to them to work out the mysteries of the natural world.
These skills will bring you all self reliance,confidence,knowledge, empathy,strength and wisdom.
While the modern education system has a lot to offer, there are limitations within it, being that the younger generations now are losing their common sense and their instincts. More importantly they are not getting much, if not any outdoor time running wild and free as they should be. This has all now been verified by scientists. This leaves a huge empty hole in a child’s world, missing out on that deep seated need to create their bond with the animals,nature,trees,fire,water....and the list goes on and on.
Wild Earth wants to re-unite the world with their birth right which is to be able to live comfortably with the earth and all the animals within it.
We have courses to quench your thirst for outdoor living, leaving you satisfied and fulfilled, but hungering for more. Our range of courses satisfy every individuals needs, whatever age you are. With our guidance you can advance in many techniques, up to a level where you will feel truly at one with the earth.
All these skills have been passed down from indigenous cultures all over the world , tried and tested by time and 1000’s of years of experimentation.

Awaken your senses and spirit to the earth
While the modern education system has a lot to offer there are limitations, the younger generations have been losing the opportunity to develop their instincts and common sense. More importantly the outdoor time spent running wild and free as they should be is no longer an everyday part of life for many children. A scientific studies have shown that nature is our saviour to many of our problems. This leaves a huge hole in a childs world, missing out on that deep seated need to create their bond with the animals, plants, trees, fire, water that sustain life.
These skills the instructors will impart to you will bring you closer to self reliance, confidence, knowledge, empathy, strength and wisdom. We hope you will discover a lost and vital part of yourself by connecting with the landscape and the environment.
