Wildlife and Countryside Link (Link) is the largest environment and wildlife coalition in England, bringing together 57 organisations for the protection of nature.

We are working to improve our own record on diversity and to support our members in doing so. We have set up a Equality, Diversity and Inclusion working group, which is developing a "state of the sector" report on ethnic diversity. We have set up a safe-space peer support network for people of colour in our membership. We are regularly reviewing our own practices at Board level. We fully support the purposes of the Diverse Sustainability Initiative and we look forward to working together on this essential agenda.
