Species conservation for the common good

We are a founding member of the Rethink Nature partnership, a group of well-known species conservation organisations keen to do something different and enhance collaboration. Combining our accumulated knowledge and experience, we are: Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, Bat Conservation Trust, Buglife, Butterfly Conservation, Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Plantlife and the RSPB.

We are all public-facing, action-based organisations that have the collective strength to make a stronger case for support and help create a more coherent message representing thousands of species between us in a way that no one organisation can.

We are currently working with Natural England on Back from the Brink, one of the most ambitious conservation projects ever undertaken. Its aim – to save 20 species from extinction and benefit over 200 more through 19 projects that span England; from the tip of Cornwall to Northumberland. Find out more about these great projects at www.naturebftb.co.uk 

The Rethink Nature partnership also run the Species Champions project. The aim is for MPs to raise awareness of their chosen species and the causes of its decline both in Parliament and in their constituencies.  MPs are encouraged to support the development of public policy and legislation that will help their species to flourish.
