Newt Conservation Partnership
We want to ensure that our natural world is restored and protected and that people benefit from that recovery.
Working with others, we will contribute to three key impact goals by 2030:
- Preserved and improved species health and habitats
- Sustainable and ethical food
- Clean and healthy freshwater
There are five priorities through which we believe we can best contribute to these goals over the next seven years.
If you would like to apply for funding under any of these priorities, please read our Guidance for Support.
Preserved and improved species health and habitats
Peat is hugely important to our natural world. As well as a great habitat for wildlife, it's valuable for combating climate change and its benefits include flood prevention and purifying water.Read more
Space for nature
Protecting and creating more space for nature enables the restoration of damaged ecosystems and degraded landscapes. It's also important that the benefits of being close to nature is accessible to all.Read more
Sustainable and ethical food
