The Endangered Landscapes Programme can only contemplate its ambitious and inspirational agenda because of the generous support received from the Arcadia Fund, whose founders share our commitment to nature conservation.

Partnership is essential if we are to successfully tackle the challenges that lie ahead. The projects in the ELP portfolio are large scale and will have a significant positive impact for nature and people. They will also provide a show-case, demonstrating to decision-makers, land-owners and local communities what landscapes with healthy, diverse, naturally-functioning ecosystems can deliver.

However, much more remains to be done – both to restore individual landscapes to life, but also to build capacity, increase understanding of what works and what doesn’t, and to create a favourable policy environment within which restoration can take place.

The Endangered Landscapes Programme – managed by the Cambridge Conservation Initiative – seeks to understand the interests and aspirations of its supporters, and find ways of working together.

If you share our vision for a future in which landscapes are enriched with biodiversity, and where self-sustaining ecosystems are restored to the benefit of both nature and people, then please contact Dr David Thomas, Landscape Restoration Programme Manager on +44 (0)1223 747121 or d.thomas@jbs.cam.ac.uk to explore how we could work together.
