About WildCookham


Life on our planet is under extreme threat. Cookham people can and should take action to address this locally, both as individuals and as a community.  WildCookham helps make this happen.


Why WildCookham?


We know that the environmental challenges facing us can only be fully solved through international cooperation, but we believe that people and communities must take action locally if real and lasting change is to be achieved.


Our goal is to make Cookham a community that both takes action and encourages personal commitment to address these great challenges.  WildCookham champions local environmental issues, biodiversity and wildlife protection.  We get involved in practical ways and provide opportunities for everyone to play their part.  We use our knowledge, our local commitment and our energy to show that all life matters.  And we have the strength that comes from being a Charitable Incorporated Organisation registered with the Charity Commission: charity number 1193867.
