Instinctively Wild began life in 2008 as Borders Environmental Education Services (BEES) a social enterprise. Originally we started out with Saturday clubs and summer camps at Harestanes in the Borders. As time went on we attracted people’s attention and started to get approached by a whole range of organisations. Such as the NHS, Local Authorities, Third Sector organisations and grant funders. We set up and ran working conservation holidays on the Northumberland Coast and ran workshops at the Greenbelt festival, We worked with Concordia to have a team of International volunteers spend three weeks with us.

In 2014 we rebranded and changed our name to Instinctively Wild. In 2015 we changed from a charity/not for profit company to a Community Interest Company. This gave the opportunity for some long term volunteers and leaders to become Directors and have a direct influence of the direction of Instinctively Wild.

Over time we have become specialist in a number of key areas; Eco-therapy, Forest School delivery and Corporate days out and team building. We just totally love what we do – making a difference in the world through a connection with nature is awesome! Instinctively Wild is a social enterprise that’s as much about people as it is about nature.
