We are an IRO (independent research organisation) and we use science to better understand the environmental challenges we face, and to find solutions to these issues.
We are leaders in – and passionate advocates of – citizen science: engaging the public in research. We empower people from all walks of life to gather data, generate environmental insights and inform future policy. We connect these people through inspirational experiences around the globe, enabling them to make a direct contribution to scientific research.
In just 50 years we have lost over half of our wildlife and we have as little as 12 years to limit the impacts of climate change.
Our mission is to live within our means and in balance with nature. To do this, we work with governments, policymakers, businesses, communities, educators and scientists. We empower everybody to take achievable actions for the good of our planet.
Our current priority areas are climate resilience and biodiversity in urban settings; freshwater pollution; agricultural land management and preparing the next generation to protect the natural world.
