Cat Survival Trust (CST)

Description

The Cat Survival Trust's original purpose was to promote the conservation of wild cats by breeding them in captivity and subsequently releasing them into suitable wild situations. Later it was realised that this was not the best way to go about conserving the animals; suitable wild habitat already had a population of cats and the habitat itself was disappearing with alarming rapidity. It also costs about £40,000 to release one cat into the wild and even then there is only a 15% chance that it will survive to breed. The Trust now concentrates on conserving the entire habitat where cats live. This is not only more cost-effective but involves the conservation of all the plants, animals and fungi that make up the ecosystem on which the cats depend.

Cool Earth

Description

Cool Earth is the charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.

We know that saving the rainforest isn’t a new idea. Managing to do it is.

Over the last 40 years, half the world’s rainforests have been destroyed. That’s why Cool Earth decided to go about things differently.

We don’t create reserves or put up fences. We don’t buy land. Instead, we put indigenous people back in control of the world’s most endangered rainforest.

These people have lived in the forest for countless generations. Their homes are now on the frontline of deforestation. They have the most to lose from deforestation.

By building better incomes, better schools and better clinics, we give our partner villages the resources they need to keep their forest intact.

Cool Earth is now working alongside 65 rainforest villages throughout the world. These partner villages are protecting over 480,000 acres of forest that lie directly in the path of chainsaws and bulldozers.

The clever part is that this forest is forming a shield to make the neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers – saving millions of acres of further forest.

FERN

Description

The world's forests are under pressure. Tropical forests are disappearing fast due to logging and mining, hydropower and the hunger for land. The last temperate and Northern old growth forests are being destroyed by the timber and paper industries. The livelihood of forest peoples is being undermined and every year thousands of plant and animal species disappear. Many organisations campaign to save the world's forests and support the struggles of forest peoples. International co-ordination of these activities is important. FERN was created in 1995 to keep track of the EU's involvement in forests and co-ordinate NGO activities at the European level.

FERN aims to achieve environmental and social justice, focusing on forests and forest peoples’ rights in the policies and practices of the European Union. The main campaign areas are: Forest Governance, European Forests, Forests and Climate, Trade and Investment and Carbon Trading.

FERN has no director and strives to make decisions by consensus. This drives its way of working which is to open rather than occupy space for dialogue on the issues that affect forests and the environment. FERN has staffed offices in Brussels, Belgium, Moreton-in-Marsh, UK and an administrative office in Leiden, the Netherlands.

Project Maya

Description

Project Maya is an environmental community interest company established by conservation scientists to build a global network of permaculture nature reserves. 'Maya Reserves' are a radically different approach to nature reserves, as they are a holistic place for both people and nature to be together in harmony.

The concept is based on permaculture and on extensive research into conservation and what works. We run a number of support projects to help us achieve this goal. We run campaigns with an urban biodiversity focus, and our 'Maya Academy' training is centred around permaculture, knowledge exchange and using social media to achieve sustainability. To build up the capital we need to buy reserves, we launched a super wildflower gardening product – Seedball.

Wildscreen

Description

Wildscreen is an award-winning wildlife conservation charity that shares awe-inspiring images of all life on Earth to empower conservation around the world.

When strong storytelling and captivating imagery are united to portray the planet, we believe that people are moved to take action to protect it.

The natural world is amazing, but when it’s not seen it’s not loved, and when it’s not loved it’s not valued or protected.

That’s why, through our three initiatives, we inspire photographers and filmmakers to take the most vital images, why we use images to inspire the next generation of conservationists online and in their communities, and why we provide images to arm conservation organisations around the world - so their all-important stories have the best chance of being seen and heard.
