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.

The site incorporates a part of the Tickenham and Nailsea Moors Site of Special Scientific Interest, designated on account of the unusual plants and animals to be found in the rhynes.

We have installed a board walk and a new hedge line to the east of the site, and we have recently planted a Black Poplar to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen. We have created four new small ponds to the west of the site, which will be in addition to the five larger ponds planned to occupy up to 500 sq metres to the east. NEWT will invite local people to volunteer in the management of this site, which should give good social and physical activities for all age groups. Its proximity to Tickenham and Nailsea gives opportunities to walkers to easily visit the site.

Angus Rural & Environment Partnership

Description

The Angus Rural and Environment Partnership (AREP) is charged with ensuring the delivery and monitoring of various objectives and actions as agreed by partners and the Angus Community Planning Partnership.

The partnership requires the ability to influence other ACPP Thematic Groups and individual ACPP members on the delivery of outcomes which have specific rural or environmental implications.

The Angus Rural and Environment Partnership will be responsible for the management and monitoring of the following outcomes contained within the Angus Community Planning Partnership's Single Outcome Agreement for 2009/12:

  • Outcome 10: We live in well-designed, sustainable places where we are able to access the amenities and services we need
  • Outcome 12: We value & enjoy our natural environment & protect & enhance it for future generations
  • Outcome 14: We reduce the local & global environmental impact of our consumption & production.

The partnership will ensure that appropriate indicators and targets are agreed to support the delivery of the outcomes. Progress reports will be produced every six months and presented to the ACPP in January and June of each year.

The partnership will develop a delivery plan against each of the outcomes with specific actions identified for each of the partner agencies. A highlight report on progress against these actions will be produced every six months and presented to the ACPP in January and June of each year.

The partnership will ensure that indicators, targets and actions "below the waterline" demonstrate clear accountability to individual agencies and/or departments. Officers of the partnership will ensure appropriate links are made to relevant strategies and/or plans. Linkages to the national outcomes will be clearly defined.

An analysis of the data should be undertaken at least once per year and inter-dependencies between outcomes of the other thematic groups will be considered in reports to the ACPP Implementation Group on a regular basis.

Cambrian Wildwood

Description

Cambrian Wildwood is a project to restore the wildwood to a large area of the Cambrian Mountains in Wales. It involves the full ecological restoration of several hundred acres of land, increasing to several thousand acres in the long term. Habitat restoration of native woodland and other natural areas will be followed up with reintroduction of native animals to create a complete functioning natural ecosystem.

The project has not yet started on the ground, as it depends on purchasing land. We are currently raising the money for this by inviting people to become Wildwood Founders, which you can do by going on our website. Once the project starts on the ground, the Wildwood area will be fully accessible to the public free of charge, so that people can enjoy the area on foot, or bicycle or horseback, camping in the wild, and pursuing adventure activities. There will be opportunities to join in with the restoration work including tree planting by joining volunteer activities.

Coed Cymru

Description

Coed Cymru began as a campaigning body to heighten awareness of native woodlands, particularly among the farming community who own most of these woodlands. In 1986 a network of woodland advisors was established, based in County Council and National Park offices. The Coed Cymru Central office at Tregynon provides the communication, technical and administrative support necessary to maintain the cohesion of the organisation.

Four clear roles have emerged for Coed Cymru: to be a a provider of free and impartial help, advice and training; to promote co-operation between woodland owners, woodland contractors and timber users; to develop hardwood timber products and markets to ensure that broadleaf woodlands have a firm economic base which will ensure their continued management; and to be an advocate for broadleaf woodland in Wales and to act as a catalyst to bring about environmental, economic and social benefits through sustainable woodland management.

Coed Cymru has also taken an active role in developing new products from Welsh softwood timber including an innovative timber building system called Ty Unnos which produces high standards of energy efficiency from local products.

Wildlife Trusts Wales

Description

Wildlife Trusts Wales works in partnership with the six local Wildlife Trusts in Wales: North Wales, Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, Brecknock, Gwent, and South and West Wales.

Wildlife Trusts Wales believe passionately that wildlife and natural processes need to have space to thrive, beyond designated nature reserves and other protected sites. To achieve this it is vital that the richest wildlife sites are protected and sustained as a starting point from which nature can spread back into our wider landscapes. And at sea we must also protect areas now for a future when our marine wildlife can thrive more widely.

Society needs this as much as our wildlife does. A healthy natural environment is the foundation for everything that is of value to people – food, water, shelter, flood prevention, health, happiness and creative inspiration. It’s the source of our prosperity and our wellbeing. We want to inspire people about the natural world so that they value it, understand their relationship with it and take action to protect and restore it.

Our network of local Wildlife Trusts is the largest voluntary organisation in Wales dedicated to protecting wildlife and wild places. Together we manage 216 nature reserves covering more than 8,000 hectares, and we are supported by 25,000 members.
