Welcome to Restore UK

Restore UK was established in 2001 as a grant-making charity to invest in the protection and restoration of Britain's natural habitat.

This vision has since expanded to incorporate environmental and bio-diversity issues globally.

Featured Project

South Georgia habitat restoration

The South Georgia Heritage Trust aims to clear South Georgia of rodents (the island is 1,300km from the Falklands). Rats and mice were inadvertently introduced in the 19th and 20th centuries, and have since devastated the bird population.

Successful completion of the protect will protect seabirds from attack and facilitate their return to their traditional nesting sites, in particular the South Georgia Pipit (above).

Restore UK has provided funding to help with this, and to assist in clearing one of the old whaling stations.

Special Update

Bee Buddies

Honeybees are vital to our survival. They allow 70 percent of flowering plants to reproduce, accounting for over 30 percent of the foods and beverages we consume. The British Bee Keeping Association says if action is not taken Honeybees will disappear from Britain by 2018.

Restore UK is funding five beehives on the roof of Weston Park Museum in Sheffield. This is part of a project run by Groundwork Sheffield which aims to restore Honeybee populations by installing domestic hives on underused urban spaces.
