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