Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust
Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is the county’s leading conservation charity run by local people for the benefit of local wildlife, with nature reserves across the county – part of a UK network of 46 local Wildlife Trusts working to protect wildlife.
We care for dozens of nature reserves across the county, including a mixture of valuable wildlife habitats ranging from beautiful wildflower meadows to splendid ancient woodlands. We engage the local community through events, education and volunteering opportunities and seek to ensure our county is a healthy and wildlife rich place to live.
We are a leading voice in standing up for wildlife and the environment. Particular attention is given to positively influencing the planning process at the district, county and regional levels. We also work nationally in partnership with sister Wildlife Trusts.
Not only do we manage our own land, we also advise other landowners how to manage their land to benefit wildlife. We are always looking for new ways to secure the future of the county’s natural world and we are currently developing a range of projects that link habitats and landowners over large areas of land and seek to influence the management of whole landscapes, placing wildlife conservation at the heart of decision making.
We aim to creating a wilder future for Nottinghamshire, with a vision to recreate and reconnect our fragmented landscape. This involves restoring large areas of habitat, improving the connections between greenspaces and making the wider landscape more wildlife friendly. With your help we can shape a bright future for the wildlife and people of the county.
