Help save UK nature and local wildlife

The UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world and our most loved species are under threat.

A donation will help us nurture, replenish and protect wildlife and our nation’s threatened land, rivers and seascapes.


Nature is in crisis - threats to UK wildlife including continued habitat loss and intensive agriculture has devastated many of the species here in the UK, together with their environment.


Since 1970, over 40% of UK species populations have declined.


97% of our wildflower meadows have been lost since the 1930s.


The UK is in the bottom 10% of countries globally for protecting nature.

How WWF Are Protecting Wildlife And Restoring UK Nature

Restoring habitats

Wild Ingleborough

WWF, with the help of partners, have embarked on a visionary landscape-scale restoration project known as Wild Ingleborough, hoping to return an iconic area in the Yorkshire Dales to its former glory and create a better future for the UK’s uplands and species that live there. So far over 65,000 trees have been planted with over 200 HA of land under restoration.

Fixing our food system 

We can't do this alone

Decades of intensive agriculture have impacted on the UK’s landscape, with big declines in wildlife and habitats. We're calling on the UK Governments to step up and restore nature by providing sustainable and affordable food for everyone. We're supporting farmers to protect nature and the climate, by using regenerative farming techniques. As well as working with large retailers to drive change and innovation to reduce our food's impact on nature.

Protecting species

Basking Sharks

WWF are working to increase and stabilise the populations of many of the world's most endangered and well-known animal species. For example, here in the UK WWF contributed to research off the west coast of Scotland to investigate the underwater behaviour of basking sharks. This study contributed to evidence for the designation of the Sea of Hebrides Marine Protected Area – the world’s first protected area for basking sharks.
