Donate Today to Help Nurture the Next Generation of Ecologists

We have been championing the science of ecology for over a century. Your donations will help us  secure the future of our vital work for the next 100 years and support the people creating solutions for a planet under threat.

How we will spend your donation

The climate crisis and an uncertain economic situation mean that we need to re-double our efforts to nurture a new generation of ecologists to meet the challenges of the future. Our expanded grants programme in the Global South and our UK bursary schemes targeted at young scientists from low-income backgrounds and underrepresented communities are making a difference. With your help we can secure the future of vital programmes like these.


The impact your donation will make 

Caitlin Thomas, a recent Ecology and Conservation Biology graduate at Sheffield University, received one of our bursaries which was made possible by donations. This is what she said,

‘BES has changed my life by opening up new opportunities. They secured me a 6-month paid ecological consultancy placement which has helped me develop valuable skills that I took forward as an early career ecologist. I could not have done any of this without financial support from the BES. Thank you! ’

With your help we can support more people like Caitlin. Even a small gift could make a big difference.
