Campaign for a #WilderFuture

It's not too late to bring our wildlife back!

Since we first met Badger, Ratty, Toad and Mole in 1908, the UK has become one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world.

We have reimagined The Wind in the Willows for 2019, shedding light on some of the problems our wildlife faces every day.

Our natural world is in critical condition and needs our help. It's not too late to bring our wildife back, but we must act now. 

We are putting nature into recovery in Yorkshire. Discover how you can help below...

Badger, Toad, Mole and Ratty find themselves in serious trouble when they return to the Willows!

Kenneth Grahame wrote The Wind in the Willows just over 100 years ago. Since then, we've lost so many of the UK's wild places and much of the wildlife that lived there.

Ratty is a water vole - they are one of the most rapidly declining animals in our country. 94% of the places they used to live in are now uninhabitable.

Toad is also experiencing tougher times - like Ratty, he's struggling to find a home. In the last 30 years alone, he's lost 70% of his own kind.

Our landscapes are disappearing before our eyes. Two thirds of Yorkshire's peatlands - home to Toad and other iconic wildlife - are damaged to the point of despair.

But there is still hope! Together, we can put nature into recovery...

How you can help...

The enormity of what we're facing can feel overwhelming. But it is possible to reverse this trend of loss and destruction.

We are restoring landscapes at the very heart of Yorkshire - our iconic and irreplaceable peatlands. Damaged almost beyond repair, they could be healthy, thriving and wild once more.

With your support we can restore these vital landscapes to their former glory - giving wildlife a home and securing a wilder future for us all.
