Our blog & news: Get involved to help wildlife

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." 
Margaret Mead, American anthropologist, 1901-1978

Search Take Action for Wildlife Conservation

The 20-27th April 2023 saw the Green Match Fund 202when donations made to 178 participating charities were doubled.  Some are protecting specific animals such as dormice or otters, whilst others are focusing on habitats such as hedgerows or seagrass. Some are based in the UK but help wildlife overseas.  The event raised over £4,349,330  for the participating charities through 22,457 donations!  This well exceeded the previous year's event (£2.8 million).  Well done everyone!

A quarter of UK dinners have no meat or fish

Posted on


Research shows that over 25% of all evening meals in the UK are either vegan or vegetarian.  Kantar Worldpanel's research shows that in the 12 weeks to January's end, 29% of them had no meat or fish. 

Trends such as Veganuary - that's going vegan for January - and a continual interest in meat free diets are affecting people's habits.   Quorn Foods saw its global sales rise by 16% last year.

The research was collected from a consumer panel of 30,000 households.  It shows a year on year move to more vegetarian meals.  In 2014, 26.9 of evening meals were vegetarian and this rose to 27.8 in 2016.  

During January, 10% of shoppers bought a meat-free ready meal - so sales had risen by 15% compared with the previous year.

Vegetables such as spinach and aubergine were up 43% and 23% respectively, compared to the last 12 months.
