Together we can bring our threatened species back from the brink.

Thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund’s award of £4.6 million, we are embarking on the crucial work needed to give England’s threatened species a better future.

By 2020, this powerful partnership of like-minded organisations aims to:

  • conserve the highest priority threatened species where they live and work together to provide integrated action and advice for all of the species
  • inspire a movement of people to discover, value and take action for England’s threatened species.

The Heritage Lottery Fund, which distributes National Lottery money to projects conserving and promoting our nation’s heritage, is proud to be supporting the groundbreaking Back from the Brink project.


The initiative is one of over 3,600 National Lottery funded projects across the UK working to raise awareness of and protect our precious threatened species, and the remarkable landscapes they live in. We’ve already invested over £760 million into conserving the country’s natural heritage, and this latest investment of £4.6m is essential to supporting British nature for future generations to enjoy.
