EXPLORE AND CONNECT
The European Nature Trust (TENT), creates unique travel experiences that connects people to wild nature and raise funds for conservation and wildlife projects across the continent. With less than 3% of charitable giving focused on environmental causes there is much scope for growth.
Wild places are essential in providing us with eco-system services from the air we breathe to the water we drink and the soil that produces our food. It has also been proven that spending time in nature is beneficial to our physical and mental well-being, whilst also reducing stress.
Our week-long conservation journey’s take you to heart of Europe’s forgotten and wild and corners. You will be expertly guided and spend time in the company of ecologists and wildlife experts working in the field to learn about the local Flora and Fauna. Ideal group size 8-10 guests.
We support, finance and co-produce natural history & documentary films in partnership with well-established film producers. These productions can be short content and longer features, but whose story has a ‘call to action’.
TENT has hosted numerous film premiere’s at central London locations such as BAFTA and BFI. In 2019 we held a ‘party with purpose’ at the prestigious Fawley Court during the Henley Regatta. Our next screening event is planned for May 2021.
You can be assured that 100% of donations received and event income generated is granted directly to our partner foundations and projects.
NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
My fascination for the natural world was born from an early love of travel and adventure, followed by a career in the furniture business that took me to some wild places. Whilst the majority of good conservation work is focused on Africa, Asia and South America, TENT works on the protection of the last remaining wild corners of Europe.
Romania, for example, is home to the largest tracts original and virgin forests in Europe, teaming with wolves, bears and lynx. However since the fall of communism these ancient forests have been under attack from multinational logging companies and corruption. Over the last millennia Scotland has lost 99% of its native woodland cover, leaving a sanitised and bleak landscape, full of deer and none of the large carnivores that once roamed the hills and glens. In Italy there is a threatened and isolated population of just 60 brown bears living two hours drive from Rome. In Spain the endangered Iberian Lynx has been brought back from the brink of extinction and this species in once again establishing an improved foothold.
Through our activities – travel, film and events – we support well proven conservation projects on the ground in key wilderness areas, and above all love connecting people to nature.
We invite you to get in touch, to learn more, and get involved.
