In 1982 The Conservation Foundation was formed by David Shreeve and David Bellamy and since then we've been working to strengthen community action that brings people together to support and understand the natural world.
Many of the world's environmental problems are so complex and huge that individuals and communities can feel powerless to help, but The Conservation Foundation believes that every positive environmental action, however small, is worthwhile. Whether it's growing and monitoring a disease-resistant tree sapling, dropping off old tools to help a local group start a kitchen garden, or learning how to look after your churchyard's trees, your time can make a big difference to where you live. All our projects strive to support these actions and help communities work together to take part in supporting their local environment.
The Conservation Foundation is a registered charity number 284656. To view our accounts and other information please visit the Charity Commission's website.
