We're protecting wildlife and wild spaces
We're a small charity with big ideas! We've been supporting, monitoring and developing campaigns and policy for wildlife for over 55 years. Working across six Living Landscapes with over 170 projects for wildlife, people and wild spaces, we're pretty busy! We've also got education centres, shops and our own summer festival - so, take some time to get to know us a little better, after all, we're your local charity!
Today, the political environment has changed but we are still fighting for our wildlife and wild spaces and you can help.
The Wildlife Trusts play a very important part in protecting our natural heritage. I would encourage anyone who cares about wildlife to join them.
