The Wildlife Trusts
The Wildlife Trusts recognise how important nature is in all aspects of our daily lives and believe it should be at the heart of our society. To achieve this the The Wildlife Trusts stands up and works for nature on all fronts.
The Wildlife Trusts rescues and restores places for wildlife and people, and influence and help others to do the same. Each year the The Wildlife Trusts reach millions of people to inspire them about wildlife and the natural world.
Every Wildlife Trust is run by and accountable to the local people passionate about the wildlife and wild places in their area. Together the Wildlife Trust has a mission to create Living Landscapes, to secure Living Seas and to inspire people to value and take action for nature.
The Wildlife Trusts manages thousands of nature reserves and run marine conservation projects around coasts. There are 47 Wildlife Trusts covering the UK, the Isle of Man and Alderney. Each of the 47 Wildlife Trusts is an independent, autonomous charity with its own trustees, whose primary concern is the conservation of nature within its own geographical area. Wildlife Trusts are split into regions; a single Trust covers Scotland; Wales has six Trusts which work increasingly closely together; there are Trusts for Ulster, the Isle of Man, Alderney and the Isles of Scilly and 36 Trusts across England largely based on the old county boundaries or small groupings of such counties.See more
