More about Professor Chris Baines

Professor Chris Baines is regarded as one of the UK’s leading independent environmentalists. He is an award winning writer and broadcaster, and has been a high profile champion of urban ecology, wildlife gardening and the importance of green infrastructure for more than 40 years. He is a national vice president of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts and has received both the Sir Peter Scott lifetime achievement award and the RSPB annual medal for his contribution to conservation and sustainability.

Chris first promoted the idea of wildlife gardening on BBC Gardeners’ World as long ago at 1979. He created the very first wildlife garden at Chelsea Flower Show in 1985 and his bestselling book How to Make a Wildlife Garden has been in print ever since. It has recently been published in an updated and redesigned edition as the Royal Horticultural Society’s Companion to Wildlife Gardening. His book The Wild Side of Town won the UK’s first conservation book prize and his Children’s TV series, The Ark won an International Wildscreen Award.

In the past Professor Baines has served as a trustee of the UK’s National Lottery, which has invested more than one billion euros in urban parks and green spaces. He chairs a landscape partnership for the Wyre Forest, England’s most extensive area of ancient woodland, and he is also president of the Thames Estuary Partnership. He is a horticulturist and a landscape architect by profession and works as an independent adviser to senior executives in the water, minerals, energy and housing industries. He is also an adviser to the UK government and is a highly experienced facilitator and public speaker. He is frequently employed as a broker of creative partnership between the public, private and voluntary sectors.
