Conserve Audit 2015
In 2015, we took a look at what people across the UK give back through taking part in the John Muir Award. Headlines included:
- 36,200 days of ‘Conserve’ activity
- carried out by 33,488 John Muir Award participants
- valued at £1,291,710, based on Heritage Lottery Fund figures
- over 7.5 hours of ‘Conserve’ activity per participant
Participants cared for nature across an extensive range of geographical locations and made improvements for a rich diversity of habitats, from mountain landscapes and coastal plains to woodlands and school playgrounds. And data was captured to measure everything from invasive species control to surveying earthworms, and tree planting to litter picking.

A huge THANK YOU to all of the John Muir Award Provider organisations and individuals that have participated in our Conserve Audits to date. We hope you are proud of your contribution – and the positive collective impact everyone’s efforts are having for wild places.
We would love to hear of any ways in which you might make use of this information. You can share Conserve Challenge quotes and photos via #JohnMuirAward
Planting trees is just great fun. I'm interested in the environment and I've learned a lot. You get a real sense of responsibility, I want to come back to see how my trees are getting on.
