Nature needs you more than ever before

Thanks to supporters like you, we look after the habitats where wildlife flourish, the coastlines that you enjoy on sunny days and the peaceful areas of natural beauty that restore our sense of calm. But all of this is under threat from climate change, which is erasing the beauty of the natural world we know and love.

As a charity, we’ve lost around £200 million due to the effects of the coronavirus crisis. We've had to pause some of our vital projects to restore nature, putting the health of the natural world at risk. Everyone needs nature, and nature needs you now more than ever.

Did you know...

  • On average, since 1970 26% of mammals have disappeared

  • Since the 1950s 50% of native ancient woodland has disappeared
