kilometres of coastal and mountain paths are maintained through our Wild Ways programme each year

We protect wild places

Wild places by their nature are fragile and sensitive to inappropriate land use. The Trust campaigns to protect wild places wherever needed and advocates for policy changes that benefit all life - plants, animals and humans.

We support natural climate solutions

The global climate and biodiversity crisis can feel overwhelming, but native woodland expansion, peatland restoration and improved land management hold the seeds of hope for our future.

We promote wildness for all

Wildness is not a place, it's an experience. We inspire and encourage people from all walks of life to enjoy, connect and care for wild nature and to get involved in direct, practical action to benefit themselves and their environment.

We work in and with communities

Wild places need people: to connect with them, to care for them and to restore them. Since our launch in 1983, we have worked to repair the connections between people and place.
