Protecting local wildlife
The Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) is your local wildlife conservation charity. Our staff and volunteers, with the invaluable support of our members, work to protect wildlife from the threats it faces. We look after over 80 nature reserves, give wildlife a voice, and inspire people to take action for wildlife.
Most people live within a few miles of one of our nature reserves. Find one near you.
