Young people collaborating for a wilder UK
Bringing nature back - together
Youngwilders is a non-profit focused on accelerating the rewilding of the UK and educating and energising a new generation of environmentalists. We do this by bringing together young people and landowners to facilitate youth-led nature recovery projects under 100 acres.
Join the wilding movement
Whether you have a parcel of land, time to commit to the cause, rewilding knowledge, or are in a position to provide financial support, we would love to hear from you.
Britain's Ailing Ecology
Traditional biodiversity conservation has achieved some outstanding successes in protecting nature in the UK.
Yet we still face what is now widely recognised as an ecological crisis - the State of Nature 2019 report found the UK to be amongst the most nature-depleted countries in the world.
Since 1970, 41% of UK species declined and at least 15% are now threatened with extinction. For us, it seems clear that our practices need to change a great deal to turn the tables on this ecological tragedy.
Our vision is optimistic.
We aren’t trying to just protect ‘what’s left’, or to fence nature away from people. The solution we favour is an increase in wilder places of all sizes, and many more people invested in their creation, care and enjoyment.
