About Us

About Us

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is the leading wildlife conservation charity working to protect and enhance the wildlife and habitats of Nottinghamshire.

What we do

We care for 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.

Governance

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is run by a Council of Trustees according to its Memorandum and Articles of Association and Regulations. Decision making is undertaken by Trustees at Council meetings and at the Annual General Meeting for members.

We are also a partner in the largest voluntary organisation in the UK concerned with all aspects of wildlife conservation, The Wildlife Trusts. This partnership of 47 individual Trusts manages more than 2,300 nature reserves and has more than 800,000 members.
