Hello! We are the Nature and Wildlife Society (WildSoc)!

Join us to discover and explore the amazing wildlife, scientific research and natural spaces in and around Sheffield. We're excited to welcome new members and to share our love for nature and wildlife with you all!

We are proud to announce that we are the WINNERS of "Society of the Year" AND "Best Special Interest Society" for 2019-20 (also Best Special Interest Society for 2011-12 and 2013-14)

We've adapted a number of our popular events to be held online (until we're able to meet you all in person!), including:

  • VIRTUAL TALKS from Sheffield staff and researchers, and fascinating external speakers!
  • VIRTUAL ATTENBOROUGH NIGHTS where we stream wildlife documentaries online, whilst you enjoy hot drinks and snacks from the comfort of your own home!
  • VIRTUAL QUIZZES to test your nature knowledge and unwind after busy days of lectures!
  • Our annual PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION held in the spring term to share your wildlife snaps for a chance at winning exciting prizes!

We also hope to reintroduce events that we have enjoyed in the past, including:

  • WALKS to beautiful places in Sheffield and the Peak District
  • TRIPS to museums, zoos and aquarium
  • SOCIALS including games nights, and the occassional bar crawl
  • A VOLUNTEERING PROGRAMME to educate young people about nature and sustainability, which you can get involved in!

(Reintroduction of these events will be considered in line with changing UK Government guidelines on COVID-19 safety measures and Sheffield Students' Union advice)

It costs just £5 for a year membership, £3 for a semester membership or £10 for a lifetime membership - this will last you for all of your years at university! We also offer membership-trip combos, so if you're new and want to join us on a trip then you can save a bit on membership fees with this ticket option!

We hope that you join us for some nature-themed fun! :)
