Administrative Governance of Wild Anglia is managed through the work of the Board.

A small  Board has overall administrative responsibility for Wild Anglia. This executive core and the Advisiors considers all legal, financial and administrative matters concerning the work of Wild Anglia as a CIC and includes individuals with significant corporate and sustainability experience.

Alongside them are a wider Reference Crew to help input ideas to develop the strategic direction of Wild Anglia.  The Reference Crew are people enthusiastic and supportive of about the agenda. They take an informal but informative role and includes representatives from public, private and 3rd Sector organisations and from across multiple sectors, which recognises the range of issues that comprise the sustainability agenda and Wild Anglia’s Manifesto.
