History of the Bristol Nature Network

In 2013 we recognised a need in Bristol for something that enables the passionate and talented young wildlife enthusiasts in the city to join together, take action for nature and develop their skills. The project was initiated by Bristol Natural History Consortium with funding from the University of the West of England and shaped by volunteers and interested others until, in March 2014, the Bristol Nature Network was officially born. Since then the network has grown, and we now have an active community of over 1,600 members on our Facebook site, over 1,000 members subscribed to our mailing list, and 1,000 followers on Twitter.
