Do you have a working conservation project to be proud of?

If you combine a passion for wildlife conservation with farming, recreation or other types of land management, the GWCT wants to hear about it.

When we asked a farmer recently how much recognition he received on a scale of one to 10 for his fantastic conservation work he said zero and sadly he is not alone. Some of the UK’s most spectacular conservation achievements, are the work of individual farmers, landowners and gamekeepers who have volunteered their own time and money to increase biodiversity on the land they look after and we feel it’s time they were recognised.

This is not a new competition or award scheme and we don’t require detailed information, just a name, place, type of farming or other business operation and anecdotal evidence of conservation success.

We are looking for people from all backgrounds and scale of business and there doesn’t have to be a shoot on the land. We can then build case studies, share best practise and demonstrate how vital private stewardship is to reversing the decline of British wildlife.

Any information will be confidential and we will of course seek consent before contacting individuals or making any information public.

If you would like to be included, please email jdimbleby@gwct.org.uk
