Abstract

This paper maps the distribution of membership for three major environmental groups: amenity societies affiliated to the Civic Trust; Friends of the Earth and the RSNC Wildlife Trusts Partnership. The resulting patterns reveal sharp regional differences in group membership, providing qualified support for the frequently-made assertion that, in the UK, concern for environmental issues is felt predominantly in southern England. Also highlighted are very low membership densities in the former industrial heartland and ex-metropolitan counties. We conclude with some comments on the significance of the data and possible avenues for further research.
