The Cameron Bespolka Trust

The Cameron Bespolka Trust is a charity that has been set up in memory of Cameron. He was a young naturalist who loved nature, in particular birds, and spent much of his time exploring the outdoors. The main aim of the Trust is to inspire and encourage young people to love and appreciate wildlife and our environment.

How do we do this?

  • By organising and sponsoring various events and activities for young people to help them develop a broader understanding of our natural world.  We are particularly keen to reach young people who do not necessarily have the chance nor the means to experience green spaces in their everyday life
  • By working closely with various partners to reach as many teenagers as we can to add another dimension to their lives and well being
  • By creating new opportunities and programmes that involve conservation work, data collecting, research as well as understanding the impact of climate change. These experiences can have a huge impact on career opportunities as well as helping them throughout their lives both personally or professionally
  • Collaborating with schools and other educational institutions to offer nature activities that are not available to them.

For detailed information on what we have achieved and what we are presently working on, please see Projects.

Many pieces of research have highlighted the positive impact of nature on physical and mental wellbeing.

Now more than ever, kids and teens are widely disconnected from their natural outdoor environment and are spending more and more time indoors. We now know that nature is important to their development in every major way: socially, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually and physically. We hope we can make a difference.


“Children’s knowledge of biodiversity is in decline at a time when we need future generations to be more engaged and aware in order to halt it’s loss.

There is a very real need to educate our children as the future guardians of our planet to provide them with the knowledge they need today to preserve the natural world for tomorrow.” Dr. Ahmed Djoghlaf, Executive Secretary of the United Nation’s Convention on Biological Diversity
