What we do


We promote ways of conserving nature which makes wildlife relevant to people lives. This means we favour bottom-up approaches of working which can be delivered by people throughout the country, who have no background in conservation.

 

Our projects are led by schools, local businesses, academic institutions and keen enthusiasts, who we support in their vision to create a wilder Britain.

Explore some of the work we do below and get in touch if you would like to develop a similar project of your own.

Translocation

Moving animals or plants from A to B is tricky. Before this can be done, we work to make sure all the background research and local support has been secured. We’re working with communities throughout Britain to bring back locally extinct species, get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Surveys

Citizen science surveys help our network of Citizen Keepers develop the rewilding projects they are working on throughout their communities. This is a key step in any project before action can be taken on the ground, get in touch to find out more. 

Captive Breeding

Some of our projects involve captive breeding, an approach where you can take individuals from captivity or the wild and breed them for a particular purpose. This approach can work to reduce local species declines, and help the reintroductions of locally extinct species to their former ranges. We are working on a new project to support glow worms, please get in touch to find out more.

Rewilding

One of the final phases of any project is the release of individuals into the wild. Along with this, we work with our Citizen Keepers to develop post release monitoring projects. We need to make sure that once animals or plants are returned, that they actually survive long term, and promote the rewilding of landscapes throughout the country.
