Campaign for National Parks

Campaign for National Parks is the only national charity dedicated to protecting, improving and promoting all 13 of the National Parks of England and Wales. We were involved in the creation of National Parks back in the 1940s and 50s, and today they remain essential to the nation's health and well-being.

National Parks are among the most beautiful and valued landscapes in the British Isles, containing some of our most breath-taking scenery, rare wildlife and cultural heritage. We want to keep them safe for future generations to enjoy. They are home to rural communities and important to local economies, and they provide a wide range of recreational opportunities.

For over 80 years, we have been campaigning to strengthen the powers of National Parks, been vigilant in monitoring the Parks against damaging developments and promoted National Parks for the enjoyment of everyone.

We work with a wide variety of people and organisations, representing shared concerns, views and voices. We come together to address issues affecting National Parks and take action to keep these beautiful places safe.

It’s our belief that the Parks of England and Wales are national treasures that are worth fighting for. We need your help to take our messages to decision makers and to make our voice heard in the corridors of power.

Our vision: National Parks are beautiful and inspirational places enjoyed and valued by all.

Our mission: to inspire everyone to enjoy and look after the National Parks.
