Protecting Wildlife

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust serves as the first line of defence for wild species and habitats in the county. We campaign tirelessly for wildlife, protecting threatened habitats such as wildflower meadows and species such as otters and water voles. We influence government policy and local planning decisions that affect the future of wildlife and the quality of our environment. Our efforts also help to secure positive gains by linking, extending and restoring important habitats.

Standing up for Wildlife

Since 1963 we have been standing up Nottinghamshire’s wildlife and representing the views of people who care passionately about our county’s wild places.

Blue Butterfly Grassland Conservation Scheme

Before the advent of herbicides and fertilisers, flower filled meadows were a familiar sight in Nottinghamshire. Sadly 97% of species-rich grasslands in the county have disappeared since the 1930s. With careful management grasslands can thrive in the county once again with beautiful wildflowers and grasses supporting blue butterflies and a wealth of other wildlife.
