100 years of nature conservation



The Wildlife Trusts: 100 years of nature conservation is a documentary film telling the story of The Wildlife Trusts. From its inception as the Society for the Promotion of Nature Reserves in 1912 under the leadership of Charles Rothschild, to the birth of the local conservation movement after WWII, through its dramatic growth in the 1960s to the present day.

The film visits locations such as Skomer, Loch of the Lowes, Brockholes, Flamborough Head, Woodwalton Fen and Ballynahone Bog. It also uses archive footage from Trusts, the BBC and other sources. Interviewees include Sir David Attenborough, Prof Aubrey Manning, Simon King, Ted Smith, Stephanie Hilborne, Hilary Benn MP and trustees, staff and volunteers from around the Trusts. The film is narrated by the actor Sam West, directed by Sarah Pitt and produced by Environment Films.

Many Wildlife Trusts are showing the full hour-long film at local ‘our history’ screenings.

    I have seen this video so many times and it is so inspiring!! It is truly fabulous that 100 years ago people were concerned about the loss of habitat – And did something about it!! – Because they wanted to – Come and see the video on the big screen at Railworld/Wildlife Haven in Peterborough – Volunteers have spent 20 years creating habitat for our native species on a former power station coal yard – Because they wanted to! So many fabulous companies helped … Thank you.

    They have a lot and they give a little. I suppose there are many reasons to maintain a fortune…
