Who We Are

We care about wildlife

Wildlife is in crisis. The natural world isn't just something for us to enjoy; it sustains us. the decline of nature puts our very survival and prosperity under threat. It doesn't have to be like this. Our vision is for a better, wilder future.

If we act now, we can restore nature by creating:

Wilder towns & cities
Wilder woodlands & grasslands
Wilder rivers
Wilder coasts & seas

A Wilder Kent will benefit us all locally. It's also a chance to do our bit to tackle the global environmental threats we all face. Join us in creating a Wilder Kent. We can't do it without you.

Together we can create a Wilder Kent.
