A Rocha UK
A Rocha UK is a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world. This is our response to the biblical mandate to care for the earth, and a demonstration of the Christian hope for God’s world. We do this through:
• practical involvement in nature conservation projects and ecological research;
• campaigning on biodiversity issues;
• engaging with churches, schools, communities and individuals.
A Rocha UK is part of the worldwide family of A Rocha organisations committed to conservation action as an expression of Christian mission, we work collaboratively with others who share our passion for the planet and our desire for its flourishing.
Our five core commitments:
Christian: Underlying all we do is our biblical faith in the living God, who made the world, loves it and entrusts it to the care of human society.
Conservation: We carry out research for the conservation and restoration of the natural world and run environmental education programmes for people of all ages.
Community: Through our commitment to God, each other and the wider creation, we aim to develop good relationships both within the A Rocha family and in our local communities.
Cross-cultural: We draw on the insights and skills of people from diverse cultures, both locally and around the world.
Cooperation: We work in partnership with a wide variety or organisations and individuals who share our concerns for a sustainable world.
