Land, outdoors and nature appeal

Will you help to support the vital habitats in our care, to ensure wildlife can thrive long into the future?

The natural environment is facing unprecedented challenges and increasing pressure on the land and outdoor spaces. What’s less obvious is the damage this is doing to the natural habitats within it – along with the wild and wonderful creatures that rely on them for food, shelter and survival.

In 2015, when we launched our 10 year Playing our Part strategy, one of the fundamental aims was to create, support and maintain a healthier, more beautiful natural environment. One that could withstand these ever-growing challenges.

This work is crucial to our commitment to the long-term health of the land, outdoors and nature in our care. It’s vital for the hard-working bees who need bountiful flower meadows to harvest pollen. For the ring ouzel birds who need safe nesting grounds. For the endangered bats who rely on woodland corridors for safe refuge. And of course for the millions of people who appreciate the beauty, refreshment and natural wonders of the great outdoors.
