What we do

We protect wildlife in Britain and around the world by bringing our most threatened species back from the brink of extinction.

 Some of our key achievements
• Raising and spending over £1 million on conserving Britain’s native mammals
• Creating 24 protected areas for water voles to thrive in the UK
• Recruiting over 50,000 Hedgehog Champions committed to making their neighbourhoods hedgehog-friendly
• Establishing a protected area for snow leopards through our conservation partners in Mongolia

Groundbreaking research

Whether it’s finding out where red squirrels survive best or regularly checking that dormice have what they need to thrive, we carry out scientific research to discover the best ways to protect endangered species. Thousands of volunteers also help us do this by counting, locating and recording species.

Practical conservation

We act on evidence from our research to save species. And we involve people like you in wildlife actions that revive ecosystems, from planting more hedgerows to creating hedgehog-friendly neighbourhoods. You can visit our traditional orchard and ancient woodland to see examples of rich wild spaces.

Educating and inspiring

Our courses help owners and managers look after their land in a wildlife-friendly way and our public events , including conferences and workshops, educate and inspire people of all ages to nurture our nature.

Rewilding the world

Around the globe, we’re helping big cats, slow lorises, elephants, dolphins, turtles and hundreds of other species, by funding international experts doing crucial conservation work.
