Wild Oxfordshire is a local conservation charity with a vision for Oxfordshire’s environment to be healthy, sustainable and rich in nature for the benefit and enjoyment of all.
Oxfordshire’s nature is under pressure. Many wildlife habitats and the species that depend on them have suffered huge historic losses, especially due to land use changes and pollution. But in recent years, where there has been targetted work, we have started to see a recovery, giving the prospect of a future where our natural environment is richer than it has been in the past and where wildlife can adapt to the impacts of climate change.
Passionate ecologist and one of Wild Oxfordshire’s founders, Dr Buxton said, “The aim of Wild Oxfordshire is to be the mortar between the bricks – to add value rather than to duplicate the work of our partners , to encourage working towards a shared vision for the county and to promote networking and sharing of information”
Uniquely, our focus is on bringing organisations and community groups together to work collaboratively and make this vision a reality. Wild Oxfordshire was established nearly 25 years ago and we have 2 members of staff, supported by committed trustees.
