WWF and The RSPB celebrate Wild Isles with exclusive Cherith Harrison collection

The wild oak and the captivating starling – two staple spirits of the magnificence of the natural world found around the British Isles and the focus for a new collaborative collection from WWF, the RSPB and the artist Cherith Harrison. Created in celebration of the landmark natural history series, Wild Isles – a five-part series co-produced by WWF, RSPB, The Open University, and Silverback Films, exploring the beautiful and diverse landscape of our home – the Wild Isles Collection has been developed with the nature-lover in mind. Cherith’s colourful design celebrates two heroes of our wild isles – the mighty oak and the captivating starling – which feature across an exclusive range of products, including the Wild Isles Cotton Lawn Scarf, Wild Isles A6 Notecard, Wild Isles Tea Towel, Wild Isles Shopper bag, Wild Isles Cushion, Wild Isles Cotton Pouch, Wild Isles Bone China Mug, and the Wild Isles A5 Hardback notebook. Each product has been sustainably and ethically sourced and 100% of the profits from the range will go towards helping vital species and habitats across the UK. Wild Isles is presented by WWF Ambassador and celebrated naturalist, Sir David Attenborough and is produced by Silverback Films, the filmmakers behind the Planet documentary series, such as Blue Planet, Our Planet, and Green Planet. The first episode in the five-part series launched on 12th March 2023. It celebrates four key habitats – grasslands, woodlands, freshwater, and marine, all filmed over three years using the latest technology to showcase dramatic new behaviour and previously unseen wildlife spectacles from across our wild isles. The launch of the series has kickstarted a cross-conservation charity campaign between the WWF, RSPB, and National Trust to use their collective voice to call on all sectors of society across the UK to come together to halt the destruction of UK nature and take urgent action to Save Our Wild Isles. “WWF has been honoured to play a key role in creating the Wild Isles series, along with our co-producers the RSPB and The Open University,” said Tanya Steele, chief executive of WWF. “Along with other generous sources, our experts provided science and expertise behind the themes and species covered. We know nature in the UK is in crisis and we hope this series will highlight that we all have a role to play in protecting and restoring it, now and for generations to come. “We can bring our world back to life.”
