There are 47 Wildlife Trusts covering the UK, the Isle of Man and Alderney
Each of the 47 Wildlife Trusts is an independent charity with its own trustees, whose primary concern is the conservation of nature within its own geographical area.
There is usually a Wildlife Trust for each county with a single Trust that 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 old county boundaries or small groupings of counties.
What our members say
Because the Trust gives pleasure for the present and hope for the future
"I have always found solace in animals and nature since being a child. My personal belief is that disconnection from nature is a huge part of the problem that humanity faces these days and therefore, I feel the work Lancashire Wildlife Trust does is vitally important on a huge level." - Emma Whittaker
"I've always been interested in and loved wildlife and nature, so becoming the member of my local Wildlife Trust was a natural step. Joining LWT has only increased my passion for nature and it has inspired me so much that I have recently made a wildlife garden in my new home." - Caroline Martin
“Not only do I know I'm helping to protect the places I love for me and my daughter to enjoy, but the events are great, we learn so much and have fun together too.”
"The Suffolk countryside is everything that I love about this county. I trust Suffolk Wildlife Trust to be its loving guardian wherever possible."
"Because its a local charity and you can see where the money goes, and appreciate the hard work that goes into it."
"I like the fact that it's a county-based organisation, that it puts so much energy into volunteering and education and that it tries to persuade other landowners to conserve wild places."
"I love nature and I don't think you can do much better than looking after your local patch"
"I think the Trust does such good work and I love to support something local."
