NATURE IS IN CRISIS – IN JUST 50 YEARS THE PLANET HAS LOST OVER TWO-THIRDS OF ITS WILDLIFE.  A LACK OF ACTION TO PROTECT NATURE HAS TAKEN US CLOSE TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN. BUT WE STILL HAVE TIME TO CHANGE THIS….. 

In a world besieged by environmental crises, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But at Earthwatch Europe, we know that within each of us lies the power to make a difference. With your help, we can leave a thriving, protected planet for every generation to come. The next 30 years will be a critical time for our planet –  as communities help reverse the decline of nature in their cities, countryside and rivers, it will be because of you. 

If you are ready to start your will and shape your legacy, write your will for free.

If you need more information, here is our guide to legacy gifts.

How to include us in your will

We have partnered with expert will-writing service Octopus Legacy (formerly known as Guardian Angel) to offer you an opportunity to make your will for free (worth £90). You can use this service online, on the phone or in person.

  • It takes just 15 minutes to write your will and have it checked by a solicitor
  • Many people who use the service include a gift in their will to Earthwatch Europe
  • There is no obligation to include a gift in your will – you can still create a will for free

If you live in England or Wales, use this link to access our free will writing service through the Octopus Legacy website.

If you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, or would prefer to talk directly with a solicitor, please call 0800 773 4014 to use the telephone service or to arrange a face-to-face appointment. Quote ‘EarthwatchFree’ over the phone.

Make a pledge and become a Earthwatch Legacy Maker

Leaving a legacy, large or small, will fund our work to protect nature long into the future.  If you have left us a legacy, we would love to hear about this so that we can honour you. 

At Earthwatch Europe we have an entire community of people who have left a gift to restore our planet, our Earthwatch Legacy Maker. This is the name we have given to our fantastic legacy pledgers. To celebrate their commitment to the planet, we’ve created a plaque to honour them. Every new Legacy Maker who pledges a legacy gift will have their name engraved, and it sits quite rightly in the natural setting of our first Tiny Forests in Oxfordshire. 

If you would  like to join our exclusive community of Earthwatch Legacy Makers and have your name engraved into our bespoke plaque, please fill out the form below. If you don’t want your name included, you can easily opt out of any engraving but we would still love to hear about your pledge.
