Nature Needs You

There’s a nature crisis in the UK – and around the world. Plants and animals in our own backyards are under serious threat – a massive 40% of species are in steep decline in the UK alone.

The good news is that you and your family can help by  becoming Backyard Nature Guardians! All you need to do is sign up and pledge to protect a patch of nature near you. Because by helping plants and animals in your own backyard, you will help protect the planet for the future.

We’ll help you every step of the way with FREE resources and FUN missions to get involved in.

Nature needs you. Are you in?


When you sign up in the UK, your patch will appear on the map so you can show everyone that you’re taking action and encourage them to get involved too!

It doesn’t matter how big or small your patch is, what matters is that you do something little and often to help plants and animals thrive there.



Support Backyard Nature

The more we can harness the enthusiasm of children like the Eco Emeralds, the more the planet and future generations will benefit. You can give even more children the opportunity to take action by donating to Backyard Nature.
