Creating a Wilder Future

We are part of a national movement of Wildlife Trusts of which Sir David Attenborough is President Emeritus.

We work locally in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire and we have a big mission  - we want to stop nature's decline.

It is no secret that nature is in trouble. Wildlife is disappearing at an alarming rate - some are calling it the next mass extinction - and the threat of climate catastrophe is a constant worry. We live in a time of emergency.

But there is still hope - we can tackle both of these critical issues - but we need to scale up and act now.

Together, with the movement of Wildlife Trusts, we want at least 30% of our land and sea to be connected and protected for nature’s recovery by 2030. Making more space for nature to become abundant once again will give our struggling wildlife the chance to recover and also restore beautiful wild places - places that store carbon and help to tackle the climate crisis.
