Wild Oxfordshire is a local charity which provides a co-ordinated and strategic approach to conservation in Oxfordshire. Through providing support and encouraging environmental organisations and volunteers to work together, Wild Oxfordshire will be the catalyst for solutions that benefit wildlife within our rich and vibrant county. We work in partnership with over 60 organisations. Current projects include:
Saving our bees and other pollinators under threat
Delivering natural solutions for effective flood management
Giving nature a voice in County strategy and planning
Bee Healthy Autumn saw three Health Centres in Oxford and Witney planting for pollinators.
Natural Flood Management in action! See drone flight showing 18 months of work – ponds, trees, field bunds – helping to hold water upstream.
The UK’s wildlife continues to decline, according to the State of Nature 2019 report. The latest findings show that since rigorous scientific monitoring began in the 1970s there has been a 13% decline in average abundance across wildlife studied and that the declines continue unabated. Notably, the 2019 report found that no real improvements had been made since the State of Nature Report 2016 UK.
