- Wild Jordan is the socio-economic development and eco-tourism division of the RSCN. Wild Jordan's mission is to develop viable nature-based businesses within and around RSCN's protected areas in order to bring tangible economic and social benefits to local communities and generate financial, political, and popular support for nature conservation throughout the Kingdom of Jordan. Through Wild Jordan, RSCN has been able to adopt a people-centred approach to protecting nature. Business ventures are being developed using the natural assets of protected areas to create economic and social benefits for local communities. Thriving eco-tourism and handicraft enterprises have been established, bringing jobs to hundreds of people. Such ventures are making nature conservation important to the lives of local communities, while providing alternatives to hunting and overgrazing, which continue to pose threats to wildlife habitats. The RSCN and Wild Jordan manage the following reserves, many of which have accommodation: Dana Biosphere Reserve, Azraq Wetland Reserve, Mujib Nature Reserve, Ajloun Forest Reserve, Dibeen Forest Reserve, and the Dead Sea Panoramic Complex.
