Wilder Future

Campaign for a #WilderFuture with us

Join our campaign to create a Wilder Future

We're joining with all 46 Wildlife Trusts across the UK as part of the Wilder Future campaign and we'd love you to be part of it. The Wilder Future campaign is calling for for political change as well as asking people to take small personal actions where they live, to help wildlife. The idea is that these individual actions add up to something much bigger across the country.

Politically, the campaign is calling for the creation of Nature Recovery Networks to better protect and join-up important places for wildlife. In England, the campaign is calling for the Government’s upcoming Environment Bill to include measures to drive the creation of these Nature Recovery Networks.

Our ‘Wind & the Willows: A Wild Story’, shows the plight of today's wildlife in a re-imagined telling of the classic children's story The Wind in the Willows.

It's not too late to save our wildlife

Kenneth Grahame wrote The Wind in the Willows just over a hundred years ago. Since then, many of the UK’s wild places and the plants and animals that depend on them have been lost.

Kenneth Grahame’s Ratty – the water vole – is the UK’s most rapidly declining mammal and has been lost from 94% of places where they were once prevalent, and their range is continuing to contract. Toad is also finding that times are very tough: he has lost nearly 70% of his own kind in the last 30 years alone – and much more than that in the last century

 

Together we can make the next chapter for wildlife a happier one. Join us to put nature into recovery.
