About Wild Marlow

We are passionate about protecting the future for our native species

Wild Marlow is a group of volunteer enthusiasts passionate about wildlife and protecting biodiversity in the Marlow area. Our objective is the promotion of conservation, protection and improvement of the biodiversity and the physical environment.

We cover the areas in and around Marlow, including the Parishes of Marlow Town, Great Marlow, Marlow Bottom and Little Marlow.

Our objective is the promotion of conservation, protection and improvement of the biodiversity and physical environment, specifically for wildlife in and around Marlow.

Our aim is to engage the local community including residents, local organisations, land owners and decision makers, through events, educational guides and tours, advice, competitions, volunteering and practical work parties, to raise awareness of the importance of a balanced ecosystem and to champion Marlow’s wildlife, whilst working with existing volunteer and wildlife groups. This will also raise awareness of the importance of biodiversity and encourage educational and social based actions to support and enhance the value of community spaces.
