Nominate a nature hero
Help us to champion Cumbria’s nature heroes
Cumbria Wildlife Trust turns 60 in 2022! To mark the occasion, we’re celebrating 60 nature heroes from the Cumbria community.
We know there are lots of individuals and groups in Cumbria taking action for nature. Help us to highlight these people and their actions, both to salute their efforts and to inspire others to do the same.
Do you know any nature heroes? Then we want to hear from you! Tell us about your nominee using the form below.
How will the nature heroes be celebrated?
From your nominations, we’ll select 60 nature heroes (if you nominate a group, this counts as one hero). Each month in 2022, we’ll highlight five heroes and their stories on our social media and website.
Who can I nominate?
You can nominate an individual or a group. Nominees can be any age (though we’ll need parental consent for those under 18 – see the form below for info).
The nominee’s actions can be big or small.
Perhaps you know sometime who spends their free time volunteering, or a young person who’s set up a fundraiser at their school.
Maybe there’s a local landowner who’s transforming their land to benefit nature, or a group that's created a wildlife garden in its community.
Maybe you’re thinking of a local person whose actions have impact on a national (or even international) scale.
Or it could be as simple as someone who’s built a bee hotel in their back garden! You can even nominate yourself.
You also don’t need to know your nominee. As long as you can provide us with some info and contact details (a social media handle is ok!) we can consider them.
You can nominate as many people as you like. Just tell us who they are and why they're a nature hero, and give us a way to contact them. We’ll do the rest.
