Protecting, Promoting & Regenerating

The Countryside Regeneration Trust protects, promotes, and regenerates our land and all life on it, by bringing people and properties together to make everyone a friend of the countryside.

With farmland wildlife in decline, small farms are struggling to survive, and the future of our wild spaces is in jeopardy, our work has become more important than ever.

The skylark has declined by 50% over the past 40 years across Europe.
The small blue butterfly has declined in the UK by 30% since the 1970s.
Hedgehog numbers have declined by more than half since 2000.

Our Impact

Educating the future of our world

We at the CRT believe that it is vitally important to raise environmental awareness in children from an early age and it is our aim to bring the great outdoors into schools and to individuals. Our exciting and unique farming and wildlife education programme, Mosaic, aims to connect young people with the natural world and educate them about how and why we must protect it, in a fun and hands on way.
