The Wilderness Foundation is dedicated to supporting nature and wild places to flourish whilst also helping people to be the best they can be both mentally and physically.

What we are doing for you 

During lockdown our natural world flourished with little interference from human activity. We heared birds sing without the competition of traffic noise, saw the brightest moon with lower pollution and flights, and animals took up vacant space…. Spring and Summer was in its element with blossoms, bumble bees at work, and gardens bursting into life as the world around it slowed.
However, we as humans are living in new circumstances due to Covid 19 by getting out less and having to be indoors or social distancing more. That can take its toll on our mental wellbeing, physical health and relationships. During lockdown some of us were in small homes with little outdoor space, only connecting physically with the outside for an hour a day. We hope that our activities and exercises will not only inspire you, keep you busy, but will help your mental wellbeing too.

In response to this current pandemic we have launched our Covid Nature Care Campaign.

We have critical services and resources that you can draw on to keep you well and active during lockdown’s imposed social isolation.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require help.
