It’s not too late to bring our wildlife back 

Sadly, since we first met Badger, Ratty and friends in 1908, the UK has become one of the most nature-depleted nations in the world. The Wildlife Trusts have re-imagined Wind in the Willows in 2019, shedding light on some of the problems our wildlife faces every day. We’ve reached a point where our natural world is in critical condition and needs our help to put it into recovery. It’s not too late to bring our wildlife back, but we must act now. Join the campaign and receive simple actions you can take for nature’s recovery.

A bit more about the Wilder Future Campaign  

The Wilder Future campaign is about advocating 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.

The Wildlife Trusts want to create a tipping point of 1 in 4 people taking action.

We have therefore commissioned a film – ‘Wind & the Willows: A Wild Story’, which will be screened in cinemas from 28th March 2019, to reach and inspire the public to take action.

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. Due to the devolved nature of environmental issues we are also campaigning for a separate Environment Bill in Scotland while in Wales we are asking for a Sustainable Land Management Bill.
