About Us

TENT supports and funds initiatives which preserve and restore wild habitats in Europe.

Our Focus

We create unique wild experiences and content to connect people with nature and raise funds for selected conservation organisations.

An Introduction

TENT was created with the singular aim of helping to protect and restore the wild areas of Europe – a sometimes overlooked conservation priority. It is now time to change that.

The unique and often irreplaceable benefits of wilderness are becoming ever more apparent. Whilst complex ecosystems are the habitat for a multitude of wild species that must be protected for all future generations, they also offer many crucial opportunities for humanity, from cycling water to supplying oxygen. 

Perhaps the most intangible benefit of wilderness is not a measure of biodiversity, or economic value, but the personal satisfaction that can be gained from immersion within it. Through our unique series of experiences, from travel opportunities to special locations, to film screenings and talks in major cities, we seek to reconnect people with nature and raise funds for the projects we support.

It is these experiences that change attitudes and ultimately convince people of the intrinsic value of nature. If the state of the natural world depreciates still further for years to come, it will matter very little where exactly you live.

TENT has been created with the specific remit of supporting and funding initiatives designed to preserve and restore Europe’s wild places and the rich biodiversity that exists within them. It is only through the preservation of these areas in perpetuity that humanity can hope to thrive in the years to come.

From the ancient forests of Romania to the wilds of Scotland, TENT supports the work of world-leading partner organisations on-the-ground – standing back from the day-to-day management TENT maintains a continent-wide view, acting quickly to support diverse projects in the areas that need it most.

Over £1 Million raised and donated to projects in 2016.
