London Wildlife Trust Annual Review 2017-2018

London Wildlife Trust enjoyed a memorable year, with the opening of two new nature reserves, upscaling of our outdoor education programmes and delivery of exciting new citizen science initiatives across the capital, amongst many other achievements.

From looking after 476 hectares of wildlife-rich habitat across the capital, to inspiring 14,000 school children and young Londoners to enjoy engaging with nature, to growing our policy work, the Trust has delivered a huge range of activities over this past year.

London Wildlife Trust delivers a wide range of programmes, from restoring valuable wild habitats across the capital city, to supporting people from under-represented backgrounds to engage in nature.

It can be difficult to encapsulate all that we do in one place – this review contains some key highlights of our year to give you a flavour of what can be achieved when we all work together for London’s wildlife.

The Primrose Hill Declaration

In May 1981 the Primrose Hill Declaration was a manifesto and clarion call set out by the Trust’s founders to gain support of their work. It set out a vision for London that would be greener, more environmentally sensitive, and more inclusive.

It is rooted in the actions taken by people in the 19th century to protect some of London’s great landscapes from being built on, and places the embryonic Trust in that framework; a collectivist, grassroots approach to putting nature back in the heart of the city. The language may have dated since then but the overall objectives that the Declaration calls for are as relevant as ever.

A Natural Future for London: Our strategic plan for 2010-2015

London is a world city, famous amongst other things for its iconic landmarks and rich cultural life. What is less well-known is the amazing range of wildlife our city supports, including natural spaces and valuable habitats, as well as thousands of species, from algae and fungi, to molluscs and mammals.

 But this biological richness is being eroded and is under constant threat from everything from habitat fragmentation and development to climate change and chemical pollutants.
