BBC Wildlife Magazine has named Wild Days Conservation one of its top UK wildlife holidays. We're actually the only English conservation holidays listed! The magazine says that our fieldwork makes a real difference to wildlife.

Good food and comfort

BBC Wildlife Magazine writer Peter Lynch says that our holidays show people how conservationists really work. He praises us for investigating issues about sustainability and biodiversity in the UK.  And he recognises that Wild Days holidays are not about roughing it. "Being spoilt with good food and comfort are key ingredients of Wild Days Conservation programmes," he adds.
