Coronavirus update

We have paused all of our membership recruitment activities, in line with Government advice to ‘stay home, protect the NHS, save lives’.

We are grateful to the businesses and organisations we work with, to our owning Wildlife Trusts, and our incredible staff who have been so stringent in following precautions to keep everyone safe while on site.

We will continue to follow Government advice during this difficult time for everyone.

Now, more than ever, we can appreciate how important nature and wildlife is to our mental and physical wellbeing.

Nature is just outside the window and so important in easing anxiety. Share the joy of nature you can observe from your window or in your garden by joining in on social media with #EverydayWildlife photos.

Stay safe and well everyone, and we look forward greatly to working with you in the hopefully near future as soon as we’re able to responsibly do so.

Nature and wildlife-themed days and weeks 

National and international theme days and weeks are a great way to promote the environment that our Wildlife Trusts protect. We attend related events and can create bespoke displays to add extra interest at venues and events.
