Existing support

Arcadia Fund

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

Arcadia is a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin. It supports charities and scholarly institutions that preserve cultural heritage and the environment. Arcadia also supports projects that promote open access and all of its awards are granted on the condition that any materials produced are made available for free online. Since 2002, Arcadia has awarded more than $678 million to projects around the world.

Fondation Segré

The Endangered Landscapes Programme has received generous additional support for the Programme’s Planning Projects from Fondation Segré.

Opportunities to support the Programme

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 demonstrate to decision-makers, landowners 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 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, Endangered Landscapes Programme Manager, on +44 (0)1223 747121 or d.thomas@jbs.cam.ac.uk to explore how we could work together.
