Restoring Our Cherished, Damaged Land

Of all TENT’s project areas, the UK’s landscapes need the most help. Across Britain, forests and wetlands have been converted for agriculture; rivers lay piped, dammed and drained; our fauna is a fragment of what once was.

Our mission is to channel our sense of natural heritage for conservation. We support a network of conservation partners working to restore natural habitats, boost biodiversity and invigorate the terrestrial carbon sink. We raise awareness of the condition of the UK’s natural resources, while enabling companies and donors to make an effective contribution to their restoration.

SECURING A FUTURE FOR THE SCOTTISH WILDCAT

We support the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland in their efforts to expand Scotland’s fragile population of the Scottish Wildcat – a species declared ‘functionally extinct’ in the wild. TENT funds efforts at Alladale Wilderness Reserve to expand the captive population and increase their genetic health, with the ultimate aim of wild releases..

BUILDING A RICHER HIGHLANDS

The European Nature Trust supports the work of the Highlands & Islands Environment Foundation – a grant-making organisation supporting projects aiming to protect and restore the ecosystems of the Highlands. Through direct funding, TENT supports HIEF’s mission to reinvigorate vibrant natural environments where people and nature thrive together. We believe that nature restoration benefits all, and we champion HIEF’s values of community-led development.

PROMOTING SCOTLAND’S RESTORATION

We support SCOTLAND: The Big Picture (SBP) in their efforts to rewild Scotland's landscapes and river catchments. SBP are working to return the species that have been lost; to expand the range of those that remain; to restore living landscapes across Scotland through ecosystem restoration; and to build community consensus on the best path forward for ecological restoration initiatives at the landscape-scale.

REINTRODUCING THE BEAVER TO BRITAIN

We support the nationwide effort to reintroduce beavers. We are active supporters of the Beaver Trust, an organisation working on the nationwide reintroduction and management strategy for the UK’s growing beaver population. We raise awareness of beaver benefits through film, education and outreach.

DRIVING ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

The Highland Outdoor Wilderness Learning Programme (HOWL) was established by Alladale Wilderness Reserve and TENT in 2007. The programme offers expert-led environmental education for local schoolchildren, supporting the next generation of environmental stewards.

Connect To Nature

We believe that the best way to connect with nature and support conservation is to get out there and explore. By visiting Alladale Wilderness Reserve – where TENT has helped to support ecosystem restoration through tree planting initiatives, peatlands restoration and key species translocations – you can experience true UK nature and participate in its restoration.
