Nurture Lakeland is a not for profit organisation that works with tourism and related businesses. We encourage businesses to fundraise for landscape conservation and to operate in ways that are environmentally sustainable and support the local community.
We promote Visitor Payback fundraising which gives visitors an opportunity to get involved with the landscape and give something back by supporting local conservation projects that care for this unique landscape and protect endangered animals and habitats.
Since 1996 we have helped to raise over £1 million for a huge range of projects including `Save our Squirrels’, the `Lake District Osprey Project’ and `Warcop Water Voles’. As well as protecting species, there are projects which protect and manage the landscape in which these creatures live. They include nature reserve sponsorship, caring for trees and woodlands and funding the re-introduction of endangered animals and plants.
