About Us

We’re not exactly environmental experts, scientists, biologists, or conservationists. In fact, we’re quite the opposite. Call For The Wild was founded by a group of committed business people who come from a wide and diverse array of academic, business, cultural, and political backgrounds. However, we all share a common interest: an absolute passion for nature and protecting what remains of Earth’s unique and amazing wildlife and wild places. We also all have our own areas of expertise to help with the mission. So, it goes without saying that now, because of the continued assault on life on Earth, we decided we needed to get into the fight rather than sit on the sidelines watching a potential man-made great extinction take place.

A humble start

Admittedly, we are just starting out on our campaign to join those who came before us, and join those fighting on the conservation front currently. But we hope to bring another resource to the table to reinforce the front lines. So, excuse us if we don’t get it perfect from the start. Let us know how we can improve, tell us what you think. Better yet, join us if you have the experience and expertise to help, or if you just want to lend a helping hand. Because Earth and its wildlife need all the help it can get right now.

Working with the experts

While we may not be the experts in the areas of rescue, research and conservation, rest assured our beneficiary organizations are. Call For The Wild is only providing funding to qualified organizations, facilities, individuals, and projects that have the highest of oversight, principles, ethical standards, and charity ratings. We only support initiatives that show the most promise for impacting long term and broad environmental and species protection. Our job is to support the committed conservationist, biologists, scientists, and others, dedicating their lives on the front lines of conservation. Our goal is to bring attention to and raise revenue for these experts.

Introducing the Call For The Wild Foundation.

A message from the founder

Call For The Wild™ (CFTW) is a movement to change the conservation culture and status quo of Earth’s losing battle to human impact. Conservationists have been fighting the battle to preserve Earth’s precious natural wonders for over two hundred years. Yet in that time our population has exploded, and the industrial and technological revolutions, along with agricultural and urban sprawl, have decimated the planet. While science was once the great hope for curbing our assault on nature, scientific evidence of human impact is now simply denied by many who profit from the unsustainable consumption of land and resources. The battle to save the planet is hinged on the economics of monetizing the preservation and protection of nature and the quality of life on Earth. In recent years these economic approaches in conservation tactics have brought a glimmer of hope as we seek to protect and restore Earth’s remaining wildlife and wild places for the generations of living beings that come after us.

With this simple and humble hope, our goal is to provide a voice and a call to action on behalf of those creatures and places that cannot speak and act for themselves. We believe that Earth’s natural biodiversity and resources also provide humanity an exceptional quality of life that needs to be sustainably preserved. People and businesses that benefit from Earth’s natural resources should participate in the critical work of protecting and restoring this essential natural balance for Earth’s long-term health and the well-being of all living creatures and ecosystems.

Call For The Wild Inc. is a cause-based business that funds our Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit. We formed with the belief that business should be part of the solution to restoring Earth’s wildlife and wild places. We also believe that the experts, organizations, and facilities that are committed to doing the critical work of saving our planet should be focused on their mission and not spending their time fundraising. For these reasons we decided to commit our resources to our own mission of funding the essential work they do. Our mission is to connect people with nature and inspire them to help protect and restore wildlife and wild places. We strive to educate, motivate, and fund the important work of wildlife rescue, research, and conservation.

We may not be perfect in what we are doing, but we will learn and grow as we go, because we believe it is better to do something flawed for good than surrender to doing nothing. We invite you to join us as a partner and defender on this journey of saving the wildlife and wild places of our planet. Knowing that all revenue generated for the foundation goes directly to this work, you or your business can join us in our Call For The Wild!

Our Story

Meet Billy Campisciano, the founder behind Call For The Wild. Billy grew up amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Southern California and Argentina, where his impressionable years were immersed in hiking, diving, and surfing, nurturing a profound connection with the natural world. Amidst these pristine settings, he couldn’t turn a blind eye to the alarming decline of wildlife and decimation of ecosystems because of human impact. Driven by an alarming sense of concern for the future, he began dedicating his spare time to conservation efforts.

Throughout his academic and professional voyage in brand design and product development, Billy’s personal passion remained unwaveringly rooted in wildlife advocacy. He spent a decade at VF Corporation, a major industry player, before venturing into entrepreneurship. From brand license management and design with iconic fashion brands like Guess, Vans, and North Face to forging pioneering partnerships with top sports leagues (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, and Nascar) and later venturing into the entertainment sphere with Disney, Universal, and Warner Bros., Billy honed his expertise in branding and storytelling.

In 2012, a transformative moment occurred during his volunteer work with a marine life rescue organization in Florida. Spending eight hours aiding a stranded juvenile dolphin in a mangrove, feeling its heart beat and looking in its eyes, he felt an inexplicable connection—a realization that change was both essential and achievable to protect these creatures. With unyielding determination, Billy redirected his life path, using his skills to champion businesses for wildlife conservation.

Collaborating with various organizations, Billy applied branding and entertainment business strategies to amplify the messaging and impact of wildlife preservation efforts. His innovative approaches bore fruit through successful partnerships and fundraising with some small organizations, and working with some influential mentors using major motion pictures to develop merchandising and branding strategies to create essential revenue for these conservation organizations.

Billy has a fundamental belief that business and people who benefit from our environment and natural resources should be part of the solution to restoring Earth’s wildlife and wild places. He believes that the experts, organizations, and facilities that are committed to doing the critical work of saving our planet should focus on their mission and not spending their time fundraising. Merging these philosophies created the concept of Call For The Wild.
