We’re celebrating our 50th birthday! That’s 50 years of conservation and sustainability efforts and educating the next generation to take care of the natural world we all share.
Visit our 50th anniversary interpretation display from 26 May opposite the exit to Fur, Feather and Scales to find out more about Marwell’s story so far, our charitable impacts through the years and how you can help us make a difference.
From our early beginnings as a breeding centre for endangered species, Marwell has evolved into a more holistic conservation organisation focussing on the restoration of species and ecosystems, promoting sustainable living and catalysing changes needed to improve the fortunes of people, wildlife and the wider environment.
In the last 50 years, the human population grew from 3.7 billion to 7.8 billion people. In the next 50 years, there may be 10 billion people sharing our planet and experiencing ever more rapid changes in society. We are therefore facing unprecedented demand on biodiversity and other natural resources.
Whatever changes are around the corner, one thing is for sure – Marwell will continue to adapt to make a difference and will remain a place to enjoy and learn about nature while supporting our work in the wider world!
