A 100 year history of The Wildlife Trusts, charting the changing fortunes of wildlife and the nature conservation movement founded to protect it.
Beginning with Rothschild’s first list of potential nature reserves in 1915, it covers: the landmark political Acts, the explosion of the local Trust movement in the 1960s and its subsequent development; the salvage and rescue operation to save woods, meadows, wetlands, bogs, and heaths; the dawn of marine conservation; the decline and recovery of species like the otter, plus the move to restore wildlife across whole landscapes.
Wildlife in Trust is divided into three sections: a history of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts; individual chapters on the history of each of the 47 Wildlife Trusts in their own words plus a comprehensive A-Z reference section. The book features more than 500 photographs and maps - with many from The Wildlife Trusts’ archives.
