Based in Chavenage on the outskirts of Tetbury in Gloucestershire, Wildlife World is the UK’s leading retailer of wildlife friendly products for the garden. Our efforts to produce innovative and valuable nesting habitats and feeders for birds, mammals, amphibians and insects are benefiting wildlife all over Europe. And our commitment to original product features has gained us an enviable reputation as leaders in both design and manufacture.
Our products are extensively tested at our base in Chavenage, Gloucestershire and also in our wildlife woodlands in the heart of Devon. During this testing process we are able to monitor prototype performance and fine-tune features. Ensuring that by the time the product finally goes to market, it is fit for purpose and ready for use by wildlife.
We believe you shouldn’t try to help wildlife at the expense of wildlife. We are committed to operating at the highest environmental standards we can achieve. Our efforts to produce innovative and valuable nesting habitats and feeders for birds, mammals, amphibians and insects are an on-going contribution to the survival of species. We are always learning and improving.
We work with an extensive network of wildlife experts, including TV’s Simon King, to develop unique products with innovative features. We are one of the few suppliers with our own UK workshop. Our uniquely designed products are first manufactured and tested in the UK. The design is then registered with Copywatch. The products may then be produced by subcontractors in the UK or other countries who all meet our environmental standards.
We use recycled cardboard in most of our packing boxes. We have developed the “Uley Tiger”, our own machine which recycles cardboard boxes into packing material. The use of recycled materials reduces our use of bubble wrap. This is all part of our policy to minimise plastic use. Plastic which we do source for production is in a recycled format wherever possible.
We work extensively with both the RSPB and The National Trust who both share our focus on wildlife conservation and our environmental values.
Our wooden products are exclusively manufactured from FSC® certified timber. We use many naturally durable timbers which require more complex drying time but eliminates the need for chemical preservatives. Our products are only treated with water-based stains and paints, we use recycled materials in place of plastic and metals where we can and a high percentage of our packaging is made from recycled cardboard
