People's Trust for Endangered Species (PTES)

Our wildlife is disappearing. In the UK almost two thirds of species have declined in the past 50 years, and a startling one in ten faces extinction. There’s nothing natural or inevitable about this. It can be stopped. And everyone can play a part. That’s why People’s Trust for Endangered Species exists.

We’ve been standing up for wildlife for over 35 years. With the help of scientists, conservationists, landowners, government, and the general public, we’re working to protect our delicately balanced ecosystem by bringing our most threatened species back from the brink.
