In a constantly changing world where wildlife is under threat, many species are declining at an alarming rate. Since 1977 People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) has been helping to ensure a future for many endangered species throughout the world. PTES is a registered charity with a board of trustees and twelve employed staff members.
The scale of actual and potential loss of wildlife can seem overwhelming. How can we make a difference? At the Trust we focus on specific problems and work to preserve endangered species in their natural habitats. We believe that successful conservation is based on sound scientific evidence and advice with practical outcomes. To find out more about our work please go to what we do.
The conservation needs of UK mammals remains one of our top priorities. The situation for some mammals in the UK is critical. For those such as the water vole and red squirrel, time is running out. Unless immediate action is taken, extinction is not a matter of if, but when.
PTES has created a special fighting fund for mammals and we welcome grant applications from voluntary conservation organisations, scientific researchers and individuals working towards the conservation of mammals in the British Isles. Previously known as Mammals Trust UK, this restricted fund is now known as People’s Trust for Endangered Species|mammals. We also offer internship awards to assist the next generation of mammal conservationists and researchers based in the UK. Find out more about mammals in our education section.
We receive almost all our funds from the generosity of people like you. We produce newsletters, regular updates and publications to keep you in touch with our work so that you can see how your money is spent and what our plans are for the future.
