Oxford University Nature Conservation Society (OUNCS) is a student-led society that aims to connect conservation enthusiasts across the university by providing a platform to share future conservation solutions and to learn about current conservation issues. We also host talks by distinguished professionals on current and contentious conservation issues and have plans for future collaborations with other Oxford environmental societies and institutions.

Our work aims to increase awareness of nature conservation work, to diversify how we share conservation messages and to encourage people to actually enjoy engaging with nature on a regular basis. By joining ConservationNOW, we hope to expand our network beyond Oxford and to also learn more about how different organisations are weaving optimism into their attitudes towards conservation issues/efforts.

While the media generally reports conservation issues with a negative spin, we are excited to hear about more conservation work depicted positively and with hope for future action. By transforming the way we share content with the OUNCS community, we hope to bring nature lovers together to discuss how we might impact the future of conservation, share conservation success stories and create an atmosphere that fosters an appreciation of and active engagement with biodiversity.

Some conservation optimism to end the year with! Let's hope for much more in 2022. #conservationoptimism https://t.co/DVhN5MDNLS

Pls help? Still time to object to this threat. I first saw Lye Valley #SSSI tiny south fen (0.5ha)in 2006. I was searching for grass of Parnassus. I found only 22 flowers, site drying out & going under scrub. 12yrs of grant-funding & vol work & now 700 fls, wet & Favourable Cond! https://t.co/EBsF1I92Lr https://t.co/l4Upiil2qY
