British Ecological Society
The world is facing unprecedented environmental challenges from climate change and crop failure to deforestation and the contamination of our oceans. That is why we are asking people who care about the future of ecology to donate or leave a gift in their will to support the next generation of ecological scientists so that they can search for the solutions.
Founded in 1913 the British Ecology Society is a registered charity dedicated to supporting ecological science through research, grants, publications and education. With over 6,000 members – many of them world leaders in their field - in 125 countries we distribute over £300,000 p.a. in grants. We want to do more. Our work includes taking 35 young scientists from some of the most disadvantaged schools in the UK on their first residential field trip where they are mentored by world-leading ecologists who give their services free of charge. We are well placed to help you make a difference.
Rainforest Concern was established in 1993 to protect threatened natural habitats and the biodiversity they contain, together with the indigenous people who depend on them for survival. In 25 years we have helped to protect 2.2 million hectares of threatened forests.
Our vision is to enable local communities to protect their natural environment, establish biodiversity corridors to create connectivity of habitat, and put in place long term conservation measures to safeguard vulnerable habitat for the future.

Environmental Investigation Agency UK
We investigate and campaign against environmental crime and abuse.
Our undercover investigations expose transnational wildlife crime, with a focus on elephants, pangolins and tigers and forest crimes such as illegal logging and deforestation for cash crops such as palm oil. We work to safeguard global marine ecosystems by addressing the threats posed by plastic pollution, bycatch and commercial exploitation of whales, dolphins and porpoises. Finally, we reduce the impact of climate change by campaigning to eliminate powerful refrigerant greenhouse gases, exposing related illicit trade and improving energy efficiency in the cooling sector. We use our findings in hard-hitting reports to campaign for improved governance and more effective enforcement.
Our field experience is used to provide guidance to enforcement agencies and we form partnerships with local groups and activists and support their work through hands-on training.
