British Mountaineering Council
The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) is the representative body for England and Wales that exists to protect the freedoms and promote the interests of climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers. The BMC works to encourage our members and the outdoor sector to minimise their impact on the natural environment and is committed to working with organisations and land managers to ensure we are aware of best practice.
We're passionate about snow sports and the environment. In 2014 we decided we wanted to put on events that highlighted the abundent talent the UK has to offer. We have since broken from the 2 run format offering innovative jams and go anywhere freestyle with our new mobile rail set up!
National Trust is a charity founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy. We protect and open to the public over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments; we look after forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, downs, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, castles, nature reserves, villages - for ever, for everyone.
Our wild flowers and other plants are wonderful, not just for the beauty they bring to our lives but for the vital role they play in supporting wildlife, cleaning our air and water and helping in the fight against climate change. Plantlife is the charity that is speaking up for the nation’s wild plants. We work hard to protect wild plants and to build understanding of the important role they play in everyone’s lives.
Preserve the Rainforest Guyana Campaign
We are a small independent campaign group of volunteers. Millions of acres of Guyana rainforest, a vital carbon sink in the climate system and vital biome, are at threat. We as a group have campaigned on behalf of rainforest retention in Guyana.
The RSPB is the largest wildlife conservation charity in the UK. With more than a million members and nearly 20,000 volunteers together we speak out for nature. It says Birds in our title, but we're also about other wildlife — it's all interconnected and you can't help one thing without helping all the others too. We work around the world, from people's back gardens to the ferocious southern oceans, saving species from extinction, protecting special places for wildlife, and motivating people to add their voice to ours.

Sumatran Orangutan Society
SOS works to protect orangutans, their forests and their future. We support frontline conservation programmes and campaign on issues threatening the survival of orangutans in the wild. Our projects include rainforest restoration and developing community conservation initiatives which support the protection of the Leuser forests, empowering local people to become guardians of this precious ecosystem.
Surfers Against Sewage
Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) is an environmental charity protecting the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches for all to enjoy safely and sustainably, via community action, campaigning, volunteering, conservation, education and scientific research.
The Woodland Trust is the UK's leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a UK rich in native woods, with vulnerable ancient woodland sensitively restored and better protection given to the woods and trees we already have . And we empower local people to take positive action for the wooded spaces they care about, too. Threats to woodland feel relentless right now - and woods and trees can only stay silent. Working together, we can all be the voice they so urgently need.
