Meet an array of British creatures who will reveal the wonders of our native wildlife
Today’s society is less connected to the natural world than ever before. Yet it has never been so important to protect our wildlife and intricate ecosystems in this time of global conservation concern. It is now we must get back in touch with our wild side and learn to care about the incredible creatures we share our planet with, so where better to start than with the wildlife on our doorstep.
My name is Connie, and I am the founder of Wild About Britain. From my background working in bird of prey education, wildlife rehabilitation and reptile conservation, I realised there was a desperate need to educate specifically about our often overlooked British wildlife that I feel so passionately for. Wild About Britain allows me to ignite that interest in others of all ages through providing a variety of interactive and educational British wildlife experiences with myself and my animal ambassadors. As David Attenborough has said, "No one will protect what they don't care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced".
Our animal ambassadors can cover a variety of educational topics. We look to inspire people of all ages to engage and learn more about our native wildlife. Being specific to British wildlife we provide a very relevant and unique educational opportunity.
The welfare and safety of our animals is absolutely paramount. We are proud to be representing some of the highest standards of animal welfare in outreach settings.
A large amount of people have not yet been lucky enough to witness many of our native species in the wild, or if they have it’s often a brief encounter. We love being able to provide you with the opportunity to see some of Britain’s incredible animals up close in an unforgettable wildlife experience.
The conservation of our native wildlife has never been so crucial. We aim to promote the protection of our rare habitats and fauna. We make regular contributions to various conservation projects across Britain in the form of volunteering, monetary donations and captive breeding projects.
