Ever wondered why our logo is a tardigrade?

These indestructible little creatures – also known as water bears – can live in volcanoes, under the sea, in subzero temperatures – even in Space. There’s almost nothing that can destroy them – but the same can’t be said for our species.

The climate crisis is impacting communities the world over. But rather than focusing on the ways humans destroy the planet, we tell the stories of those fighting to protect it. From Indigenous wisdom and circular living to guerilla gardening, there’s a place on WaterBear for every kind of action.

Now, we’re asking for your help to keep bringing those stories to life.

The backstory

In June 2024, we closed a £10 million Series A capital raise.

With our network of over 150 NGO and brand partners, and 2 million-strong community in 170 countries, we’re already sharing truly inspiring and changemaking content.

Now, we want to bring our community on board – after all, you’re the backbone of WaterBear.

That’s why we have opened a crowdfunding campaign!

For as little as £20, you can invest in our crowdfund with Seedrs, and be part of our exciting plans for growth. This investment will allow us to broaden our offering, bringing in new and updated user features, more award-winning stories and voices from around the world, and inspiring resources for our climate-conscious community.
