As the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity, we are the leading voice for woods and trees. We campaign to protect precious ancient woods, restore the ones that are damaged and fight for those under threat. We create new native woodland around the UK with the help of communities, schools, organisations and individuals.
We have been working with the Woodland Trust for many years, and we are pleased to say that in this time we have greatly contributed to their increased exposure and 500,000+ members and supporters. We engage more than 60 Woodland Trust fundraisers, who operate at a great variety of shows and events, as well as local venues, increasing membership numbers and enlightening the general public about the charity and the crucial work that the Trust does around the country.
Our ultimate goal has always been “people living in harmony with nature” – so we’re about respecting and valuing the natural world and finding ways to share the Earth’s resources fairly. To achieve that, we spend a lot of time working with communities, with politicians and with businesses too.
Having started working with WWF in July 2016, we are proud of both the results and quality of our work. WWF, the world’s leading independent conservation organisation, has acknowledged us as being great representatives for them, with many fundraisers having received personal recognition of WWF Ambassador awards and badges. We are now developing our campaign with WWF and looking for key people to be part of our expanding goals.
Greenpeace stands for positive change through action to defend the natural world and promote peace. We investigate, expose and confront environmental abuse by governments and corporations in Britain and around the world. We champion environmentally responsible and socially just solutions, including scientific and technological innovation.
Independence is one of Greenpeace’s core values, which means we don’t solicit or accept funding from governments, corporations or political parties. Individual supporters and foundations are our only source of financial support, which means recruiting new members through partners like Working for Wildlife is critical to the success of our mission.
Wild flowers, plants and fungi are the life support for all our wildlife, and their colour and character lights up our landscapes. But without our help, this priceless natural heritage is in danger of being lost. From the open spaces of our nature reserves to the corridors of government, Plantlife works nationally and internationally to raise their profile, celebrate their beauty, and to protect their future.
Working for Wildlife started working with Plantlife in 2018, and there are high hopes that the partnership can grow steadily year on year to help grow what is such a fantastic organisation.
