We campaign to see a wilder future, so everyone can benefit from and enjoy wildlife near them. We have a long history of campaigning for positive change for nature and people, and working with local communities to save special places for wildlife and helping nature to recover.
We want to see at least 30% of our land recovering by 2030.
Stand up for nature with us for a Wilder Future.
The Climate Emergency
We are facing an environmental and climate emergency which are inextricably linked.
Climate change is driving nature's decline, and the loss of wildlife and wild places leaves us ill-equipped to reduce carbon emissions and adapt to change.
We need to make space for nature everywhere, to help it recover but to also tackle to biggest environmental crisis we have ever faced.
Action for Insects
In the UK, our insect populations have suffered drastic declines, which are set to have far-reaching consequences for both wildlife and people.
Whilst the news for insects is bleak, there remains much that can be done to bring about their recovery, but fast action is required.
Take a look at the Action for Insects campaign to find out how you can help.
Nature Recovery Networks
A joined-up system of places which allows plants, animals, seeds, nutrients and water to move from place to place and enables the natural world to adapt to change.
The Wildlife Trusts are calling for laws to require all relevant parts of central and local government to work together to map, plan and create a Nature Recovery Network.
Find out more and the projects we are involved with to make this happen.
Shrewsbury North West Road
We need to say NO to politicians stuck with the outdated belief that building more roads is the answer to all problems.
The new road around Shrewsbury will have a negative impact on wildlife and add to pollution levels (and more!).

How can you help
Shropshire's nature recovery will come about if we all work together to make it happen. Grassroots action will mean thousands of small projects contributing to a reinvigorated mosaic of nature. A wave of local actions makes a difference across a large area, and you can play your part too!
For example, if you were to make a hole in your fence so a hedgehog could get through and forage in your neighbour’s garden as well as yours, and if your neighbour were to do the same thing, allowing it to roam further and find other hedgehogs, you would give our prickly friends a much better chance in the future.
