Wild Oxfordshire is a local conservation charity with a vision for Oxfordshire’s environment to be rich in nature, healthy and sustainable for the benefit and enjoyment of all. Our focus is on bringing organisations and community groups together to work collaboratively and make this vision a reality, providing the ‘mortar between the bricks’.
Wild Oxfordshire has three key aims: to stimulate better land management for nature in
Oxfordshire; to increase awareness and interest in enhancing Oxfordshire’s nature; and to foster a collaborative and strategic approach to nature conservation in Oxfordshire.
We focus on areas where our conservation expertise can make a difference such as in community conservation and strategic biodiversity work. We are continually exploring new partnerships to broaden the diversity of community engagement and support the natural heritage of Oxfordshire. Our work involves sharing information and good practice through conferences, newsletters and email bulletins, influencing decision makers and helping to initiate and drive forward new projects.
We have produced a county wide report ‘State of Nature in Oxfordshire 2017 ‘ in order to highlight both the losses and successes across our county, and to encourage engagement with the natural world from all sectors. We host other strategic partnerships – Oxfordshire’s Biodiversity Action Group, the Conservation Target Area approac, the Evenlode Catchment Partnership. We are piloting an innovative Natural Flood Management Project and our Community Ecologist is unique in offering free advice and support to the many Community Groups that help conserve local widlilfe.
