How can we make a difference together?

Together we can bring back wildlife. The things that we do, the action we take, the contributions we make all add up to a Wilder Future for Somerset.  One where both people and wildlife thrive alongside each other.  We can't do what we do without you.  This channel includes videos that hopefully bring to life the projects, the campaigns, the conservation areas that we focus on to help Somerset's natural environment, which will hopefully inspire you to join our cause. 

Wild LIVE

On Monday 29 June 2020, Craig Bennett, Chief Executive of The Wildlife Trusts, will be live with a fantastic panel of experts discussing whether we need to press the reset button on our relationship with nature as we emerge from Covid-19.

Wilder Future

Wilder Future is the brand 'umbrella' under which many of our key public facing, movement-wide external campaigns operate under.  A Wilder Future project or campaign encourages people to actively participate and engage with our work, value nature, and to take a further step in standing up for the natural world in the county, whether that's gardening for wildlife or contacting their MP about an important conservation issue. The natural world needs more heroes.
