For more about what we do, see Our Work .

Our Members

We have over 170 members including 10 parish councils. 

Members include the climate and nature lead councillors at Oxfordshire County and South Oxfordshire District Councils; other councillors from all levels of governance; ecologists; planners; and many more from relevant professional backgrounds.

Our expertise is wide: ecology, climate change, law, planning and business. Many members belong to other climate or nature groups, and help us engage with organisations such as Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT), Wild Oxfordshire, the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), Earth Trust, Friends of the Earth, One Planet Oxfordshire, Woodland Trust and Not the Expressway Group (NEG).

Citizens have been incredibly generous and have made it possible for Bioabundance to take legal actions. A number of parish councils have made substantial donations under Section 137 of the Local Government Act 1972.

We welcome people and organisations that care about the recovery of our natural world, and halting and adapting to climate change, to the benefit of current and future residents of Oxfordshire.

Our Specialities

Development – we set up to oppose the unsustainable South Oxfordshire Local Plan which is now showing itself to be unusable due to sewage constraints

Landscape scale recovery – we were the original proposers of the 100sq mile Regional Nature Park (Otmoor, Shotover…Brill Hills, Ray Wetlands etc) now ‘championed?’ by BBOWT

Governance – 9 parish councils are members; we have several councillors from different levels: County and S.Ox (including the Nature leads), other district councils, and the towns and parishes

Expertise – our members include a host of ecologists, hydrologists, planners, naturalists, as well as enthusisasts for the natural world.
