Who we are
Wildlife and Countryside Link is an umbrella body, whose purpose is to bring together voluntary organisations in the UK to protect and enhance wildlife, landscape and the marine environment, and to further the quiet enjoyment and appreciation of the countryside.
We currently have 44 members who collectively employ over 11,000 full-time staff, have the help of 174,000 volunteers and the support of over 8 million people in the UK. Our members are united by their common interest in the conservation and enjoyment of the natural and historic environment.
Link is not a representative body and we issue statements only with the express support of our members. We are run by a small Secretariat, using the considerable collective experience and evidence of our members to develop our policies.
