The Wildbelt Series Fundraiser

Britain's habitats are in crisis!

We've lost up to 97% of some of our most precious natural habitats, and nearly half of the nation's biodiversity has disappeared since the 1970s.

But there is hope! The government and the UK's Wildlife Trusts are spearheading a plan to restore 30% of the UK's land and sea for nature by 2030. This ambitious target is called 30by30, and it's more than possible if we all work together.

One of the key goals of the 30by30 initiative is to create a Wildbelt across the nation. This would be a network of connected patches of land designated specifically for wild land, managed and protected to provide homes for wildlife that need certain habitats here in the UK.

The Wildbelt Series is our contribution to the 30by30 and Wildbelt initiatives. We're taking a tour of some of the UK's most precious and vulnerable habitats, showing you that there is something you can do to help, no matter where you live or whether or not you have any money to donate.

Your donation will help us to:

  • Produce more documentaries and interactive media that engage audiences in wildlife conservation.
  • Empower people to get involved in the many projects and schemes that focus on habitat restoration, conservation, and expansion.
  • Support the work of the people who are restoring, conserving, and expanding our habitats here in the UK.
  • Get more people volunteering in local conservation efforts.

We have so far filmed our first series of 8 short episodes, each focusing on a different habitat type. We have started to release these episodes on Youtube and production has commenced for our second series which we plan to have ready to release by the autumn this year. Series 2 will be bigger and better than the first, including special guests and conservation success stories in the least likely of locations.

The Wildbelt Series has been produced completely in-kind by our team as an unsponsored series - we’re making this series to help however we can. We are also not making any money from this production. As much as our production team is donating their time and equipment, we’ve also spent funds on travel, accommodation, and entrance to various reserves. We’ve managed to cover our costs so far, but we are fundraising to cover the costs of future logistics and access, all to continue and expand the reach of our project in the near future. 

Any donation you can spare will be greatly appreciated!

Boruca Christmas 2023

Give the gift of Christmas to the children of the Boruca Indigenous Community in Costa Rica

Thanks to just 20 kind people last year, we managed to send over £500 to support a Christmas tradition that means the world to the Boruca Indigenous Community, and so we’re doing it all again!

Christmas is just around the corner and we know that things are tight for us in the UK again this year. However, for some very special people in the village of Boruca in Costa Rica, most families cannot even afford to do a Christmas dinner or buy a single gift for their kids this year. In fact, during COVID, lots of local families skipped Christmas in every sense other than attending socially-distanced church services. 

Boruca Christmas 2023

We are therefore fundraising to help the lovely Adriana to host a special community Christmas party during which she will provide a home-cooked meal and give a gift to every single child in the village. We would be so grateful to anyone that can spare a fiver or the cost of a festive coffee to help us to help Adriana to do this.


The Indigenous Community of Boruca is nestled into the Talamanca Mountain Range in Costa Rica. We know that sounds far away, but this village is at the core of our production work here at Native to Earth. This community is the last non-displaced indigenous group in Central America and their methods of conservation are trailblazing; our team is making a documentary about this place and these people and their centuries old harmony with nature.

Nowadays, the Borucans rely on tourism for their income, hosting tourists in the village and selling their beautiful artwork all over the world. During the pandemic, they were physically roped off and lost almost all of their livelihoods for the same duration we couldn't live as normal. Most families ended up trading food they grew with other families just to feed themselves. As you can imagine, despite tourism kicking off again, they are still struggling and there isn't much to spare at the moment.

Boruca 2

The lovely lady with glasses in these photos is Adriana. She runs multiple community projects, keeping the history of her ancestors alive in one, and bringing Christmas tradition and joy to young people in another. She is the hostess for the community Christmas party and she ends up bringing Christmas to families that would otherwise treat the day as if it were any other. These photos are from last year’s event, thanks to all of the kind donors!

Thank you for anything you can spare... We will update you all on the impact of your donations. It will be clear in the photos of the children. Adriana also thanks you and will forever label you as the Godparents of the Borucan children!

Feliz Navidad

Take Action!

We’re all natives to this planet, but some people have been in some places for much longer than we have, with their ancestors passing down wisdom about the environment around them and how to nurture it to live well and allow it to continue to thrive.

Here you can connect with indigenous people and locals working to conserve the world’s most wild places and you can do something small or something BIG to help them keep going.

Whether you’ve got some money you can spare, some time to read about an issue and inform others, or energy to get involved in a campaign, volunteer for a project

Here at Native to Earth, everything we do is to connect you with the people and projects working to conserve the world’s Key Biodiversity Areas.

This is the hub for finding successful conservation projects, so go and explore and pick a way to take action today!
