Conservation at home and around the globe

This summer, we’ve organised our most ambitious programme of events ever, called Explore Conservation.

Each day, there will be different talks and children’s activities, which have been organised by the Living Rainforest’s staff in order to share their passion for conservation with visitors.

We’re delighted to welcome speakers from a broad range of external organisations working in both the UK and abroad, including the Turtle Survival Alliance, Berkshire Ornithological Club, Saiga Conservation Alliance, RSPB, Reading & District Natural History Society, Upper Thames Butterfly Conservation and the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT).

The topics range from rainforests to our back gardens, to reflect the fact that all species need to be conserved, wherever they originate from on the planet. In the UK context, rainforest plants and animals may seem more exotic or unusual but, of course, they are not the only species which need to be protected.

If everyone takes steps to protect the plants and animals in their own backyards, then the goals of global conservation will be much more likely to be realised on the wider planetary scale.

The Living Rainforest exists to help to inspire people to appreciate the beauty and importance of the natural world, but ultimately for each of us, conservation begins at home.
