Our aims

Nature's recovery

We need to make more space for nature to give our struggling wildlife the chance to recover. We would like to see 30% of our land and sea managed for nature by 2030. We’ll create, connect and restore a diverse range of abundantly wild places and form thriving nature recovery networks across the region.

Empowering people

Inspiring and resourcing people to take action for wildlife. The science shows that if just one person in every four takes action for wildlife, this can be enough to change the minds and behaviour of the majority, which will help to put nature in recovery. 

Nature-based solutions

We want to restore and create good quality habitat to draw down carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, reduce local flooding and pollution while promoting an abundance of biodiversity across our region. Our vision is to see 1000 hectares of habitat across Avon restored, providing nature-based solutions to the climate crisis.
