Bristol Natural History Consortium

Bristol Natural History Consortium – Engaging people with the natural world through collaborative action

Our objectives:

  • To deliver entertaining and informative events and activities that inspire greater public interest, volunteering and participation in nature conservation.
  • To develop novel communication techniques that engage the widest possible audience – national and international.
  • To initiate and support research into how audiences absorb and respond to conservation messages.
  • To build effective partnerships that bring together diverse organisations that face similar challenges and issues, and to help organisations learn from each other.

How it all began:

The Bristol Natural History Consortium started in 2003, when 6 organisations in Bristol joined forces on flagship environmental communication projects. From 2003-2008 we worked together under a memorandum of understanding, before gaining charitable status in May 2008.
