Wild Places Survey

The John Muir Trust's purpose is to conserve, protect and restore wild places in the UK for the benefit of all. To help us meet our purpose, we need to understand where you think the most important wild places are, what makes them special and how we value them.

We’ve created a short Wild Places Survey to collect as many people’s answers as possible across the UK.

For your chance to WIN £1000 of outdoor gear from Mountain Equipment*, please click on the link below and tell us which wild places are important to you, and why. (*T&Cs apply).

Wild Places Survey

Please tell us about your favourite wild places, so we can work to protect and repair them for future generations

Take the survey

The wild place survey data will help us develop:

  • a register of wild places which will list the most important wild places across the four nations of the United Kingdom based on how they provide freedom for nature to flourish, freedom for people to benefit from being in them and freedom for local communities to benefit from them
  • recognised standards that will enable land managers of wild places to manage them sensitively and sustainably.

Ultimately we will set up an independent monitoring unit to assess and report on the condition of wild places across the four nations.

Our aim is to demonstrate the positive impact of exemplary land management on these sites and inspire people and communities to benefit from and advocate for them.
