Berks, Bucks & Oxon’s wildlife is in decline. 

Our vision is for a region rich in wildlife. If you love wildlife and wild places, then it’s only natural that you’d want to protect it.

 

By becoming a member of your local Wildlife Trust today, you will not only be helping to look after havens for wildlife and protect rare species at risk from vanishing, but you will also be giving all local people, especially children, a chance to explore and connect with nature. 

As the threat to wildlife grows, we rely on our members’ support now more than ever to help with our vital conservation work. Join us today and together we can ensure our precious local wildlife is protected for future generations to enjoy. We promise to spend your donations wisely with 77p in every £1 going directly towards our work to save our local wildlife.

We care for over 86 local nature reserves and work with local people to make sure that wildlife is cared for wherever it may be, whether it is in our countryside or in our towns.

With a little help we know wildlife can bounce back from the brink of extinction. In the mid 1970s, otters were dangerously close to extinction in the UK. Thanks to hard work to clean up our rivers and to restore their riverbank homes, otters can now be found in every single river in the UK. We want to see other species such as barn owls, water voles and adders make these impressive comebacks. We know it is possible to save our local wildlife but we can’t do it alone.
