Some examples of local partnerships include our work with the Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trusts and The Wildlife Trusts who we’ve partnered with to provide pro legal advice, donations and skilled volunteering, including team Wild Work Days to support conservation and habitat restoration efforts at local nature reserves.  As well as education programmes supporting young people build their literacy and confidence through our partnership with ChapterOne.
