Who we are
The loss and degradation of natural habitats is a hugely complex problem that threatens our future, not only jeopardising the survival of individual species but compromising the ability of entire ecosystems to support life.
From the grassy meadows that are vital to pollinating insects, to the peat bogs that prevent carbon from entering the atmosphere. From the woodlands that offer incredible biodiversity, to the wetlands that provide life-support for migratory wildfowl; the importance of our natural habitats, and the role of sustainable shooting in creating and preserving them, cannot be overstated.
It’s up to all of us to take action, and particularly those of us committed to sustainable shooting. We believe we have a duty not only to protect the species we shoot and those that we don’t. It is our aim to leave a positive legacy for the future.
That’s why we created the BASC Wildlife Fund. The fund builds on the foundations laid by the former Wildlife Habitat Trust and Wildlife Conservation Stamp Trust, and the Wildlife Habitat Charitable Trust (WHCT), a registered charity which was founded by BASC in 1992. Today, the WHCT sits behind the BASC Wildlife Fund as a grant-giving body.
Working together, we can ensure thriving natural habitats for generations to come.
