It's not too late to bring our wildlife back

Sadly, since we first met Badger and friends in 1908, the UK has become one of the most nature-depleted nations in the world. The Wildlife Trusts have created an animated trailer of Wind in the Willows, which brings to life the 21st century threats that would face the much-loved characters from Kenneth Grahame's children's classic in today's life.

On watching it, we hope that you'll agree that we've reached a point where our natural world is in a critical condition and needs our help to put it into recovery. We know it's not too late to bring our wildlife back, but we must act now.

Join our Wilder Future campaign and receive simple actions you can take for nature’s recovery.

Wilder Future Campaign

The Wilder Future campaign is about building support for new laws that not only protect wildlife but help to put it into recovery.  It is also about people taking individual action where they live. We want to put wildlife back on the map.

The campaign is calling for a Nature Recovery Network to protect existing wildlife sites and map out where wildlife ought to be.  This will join-up important places for wildlife and also allow more people to live closer to nature.

Campaign asks across the UK

In Wales

We're asking the Welsh Government to do this through a Sustainable Land Management Bill.

In Scotland

They're asking the Scottish Government to pass it's own Environment Bill to include a National Ecological Network.

In England

They're asking the Westminster Government to put a Nature Recovery Networks map into it's Environment Bill.
