Protecting wild land
The John Muir Trust is dedicated to protecting wild land - large areas of high scenic and wildlife value, with minimal evidence of modern human development.
We raise awareness of the unique and irreplaceable benefits of wild land - clean air, water, flood prevention, protection of rare peatlands, retention of carbon in the ground and health and well-being.
We work hard to persuade governments and policy makers of the benefits of wild land and the value in protecting and restoring it. We work with our members and supporters to show the strong public support for better protection for wild land.
We stand up for wild land when it comes under threat - challenging inappropriate developments that will damage wild land.
By making a donation you can help us continue to campaign for wild land.

We have regularly been nominated for the TGO "Campaign or Campaigner" award, winning in 2014 and 2015, highly commended in 2016 and 2017 and receiving a Silver Award in 2018.
The wedges of development are being driven hard, and none of the obstacles or defences of nature can long withstand the onset ...John Muir
