Northumberland Wildlife Trust


Northumberland Wildlife Trust is the region's leading, non-government funded environmental conservation charity, supported by around 50 skilled staff, 12,500 members and 300 volunteers. One of 47 Wildlife Trusts across the UK, we have campaigned for over 40 years to create an environment rich in wildlife within Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland. The Trust manages over 60 nature reserves, including some of the country's rarest and most protected habitats. For example, the Border Mires are internationally important peat bogs, which store huge amounts of carbon and help to control water levels. Druridge Bay is renowned for its beautiful white sandy beaches and great variety of birdlife all year round. The Trust also runs important species conservation projects and is the lead partner for Red Squirrels Northern England which aims to save the red squirrel from extinction. There is an open access policy for all reserves and the Trust actively encourages everyone to get out and about and enjoy nature. The Trust runs many events, walks and activities each year to inspire all generations about nature.
