The Rethink Nature partnership is a group of leading species conservation organisations of which Bat Conservation Trust is part of. It combines our extensive knowledge and experience to catalyse the action that species need. Read more about Rethink Nature here.

We have a common vision of a healthy planet, rich in diverse wildlife, where species thrive alongside people and where people’s love of nature means we respect and cherish other species and benefit from the health and wealth that comes from a thriving natural world.

Rethink Nature is currently supporting and working on three innovative nationwide conservation initiatives: Back from the Brink, Farm Wildlife and Species Champions.

Species on the Edge

Rethink Nature

Scotland's spectacular coasts and islands are amongst the most biodiverse areas in the UK. And they provide a last refuge for some of our most threatened species. Species on the Edge is a ground-breaking partnership that focuses on 37 priority species found along Scotland's coast and islands. Find out more about Species on the Edge.

Natur am Byth!

Rethink Nature

The Natur am Byth partnership is Wales’ flagship Green Recovery project. It unites nine environmental charities with Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to deliver the country’s largest natural heritage and outreach programme to save species from extinction and reconnect people to nature. The ten core partners include the Rethink Nature Partnership with the addition of Vincent Wildlife Trust, Marine Conservation Society and NRW. Find out more about our work with Natur am Byth!

Back from the Brink

Rethink Nature

The Back from the Brink programme (2017-21) was an ambitious nationwide partnership initiative that aimed to save some of our most threatened species from extinction and reverse their fortunes to put them back on the road to recovery, working through a suite of 19 conservation projects across England. Read all about this project here.

Farm Wildlife

Rethink Nature

Farm Wildlife sees 9 leading wildlife organisations brought together to provide a single source of best-practice management advice for wildlife on farmland. It aims to sustain farmland species and bring wider benefits across the farm enterprise. Read more here.

Species Champions

Rethink Nature

Species Champions partners Members of Parliament from England with leading conservation organisations to bring political support to the protection and promotion of threatened wildlife.
