Many companies are already making an important contribution to biodiversity by supporting the work of the BTO through our Corporate Membership Scheme or through corporate partnership.
BTO working with EDF Energy to see 'What's Under Your Feet'
BTO is delighted to announce a new collaboration with EDF Energy, the UK’s largest provider of low carbon energy, to inspire a new generation of scientists.

What our Members say
"Biodiversity is at the heart of the way Anglian Water does business and affiliation with the sound science coming from the BTO is a great way of demonstrating our commitment to managing our sites for birds and other wildlife."
Chris Gerrard, Climate Change & Biodiversity Manager
"We are proud to have raised over £1million for BTO through the sales of our wild bird care products and we are already working hard on the next million. As well as raising money for the work of the BTO, the partnership with Gardman results in product improvements and keeps us informed with the latest information on wild birds."
At Cherish wild Bird Food we care about our birds as much as you do. Feeding birds in our gardens is a great way of helping them locally but isn’t enough to protect them on a national and global scale, that’s why we are delighted to help support the BTO through the Corporate Membership Scheme
