The Conservation Foundation, a registered charity in the UK, was founded by Prof David Bellamy and David Shreeve. The Foundation was launched at the Institute of Directors on 5 March 1982 at an event covered by BBC TV’s Pebble Mill at One. The event helped launch the Foundation’s first awards programme supported by Ford. Prof Bellamy is the President of the Foundation and David Shreeve is its Executive Director.
The charity is governed by a Board of Directors and supported by a Council. Based in the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington, London, its current activities primarily cover the UK, but past projects have covered every continent on earth.
The foundation runs a number of projects to engage the public in environmental issues. Most are aimed at communities around the UK, whilst others target specific regions of the UK or operate internationally.
The charity is supported through government funding, charitable trusts and foundations, individuals, and business sponsorship through corporate social responsibility projects. It is not a membership organisation.
