Our Regional Work

Our Regional Work

The Wildlife Trusts, East Midlands are Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire & Rutland and Northamptonshire Wildlife Trusts. Collectively we have over 70,000 members, 2,500 volunteers and 140 staff. We manage 270 nature reserves covering over 7,000 hectares and invest considerable funds, effort and expertise into conservation of the region’s wildlife each year.

Our vision is for an environment rich in wildlife for everyone. We work towards a purpose to ‘re-build biodiversity and engage people with their environment’.

Our Objectives

  • To stand up for wildlife and the environment
  • To protect and enhance biodiversity
  • To inspire people and foster sustainable living

Large-Scale Delivery by The Wildlife Trusts

We are working with partners to target habitat restoration within these large areas in order to link and expand available sites for wildlife.

As well as focussing on these large areas, we work at a local scale throughout the region, managing nature reserves, maintaining local wildlife sites, running projects and working with farmers, local authorities and other land managers to enhance their land for wildlife.

Wildlife Trust Large Area Projects

We are working with partners to target habitat restoration within these large areas in order to link and expand available sites for wildlife.

In all these areas our work contributes towards widely agreed targets for conservation of biodiversity, by maintaining, enhancing and expanding threatened and declining habitats and species populations. This helps restore the region’s characteristic wildlife; at the same time creating areas of habitat large enough to help wildlife withstand and adapt to a changing climate.

For more information on regional biodiversity targets and the regional Biodiversity Conservation Areas and Biodiversity Enhancement Areas that much of our work contributes towards and falls within, please see the Regional Biodiversity Strategy at the web address below. These targets and areas have been agreed by the Regional Biodiversity Forum, of which we are active members and we are proud to be contributing, with our partners, towards their fulfilment.
