Saving the Ocean’s Forests

Kelp forests provide critical habitat for marine life, sequester carbon, and are deeply connected to Oregon’s coastal communities. And, we’re losing them.

Be Wild, Stay Human

Wild Human tells stories about people, organizations, and brands who make their livings in the outdoors.

We’re inspired by outdoor culture and passion for environmental conservation. Living in the Pacific Northwest, we have access to some of the most beautiful lands on the planet. It also means that we have a responsibility to take care of those places.

Our reviews focus on products from companies who we believe are leading our friends and neighbors towards a more sustainable and healthy future.
