With climate change on everyone’s doorstep, woods and wildlife are under threat. But there are hundreds of ways you can help. If you’re aged 16-25 and have an idea that could bring positive change to woods, wildlife or the climate, we want to hear from you! Sign up for our youth conservation challenge for the chance to create a fully funded project with expert support. You bring the brains, we’ll bring the tools.
