Protecting local wildlife
Your local Wildlife Trust has a vision of a wilder Berks, Bucks and Oxon. We’re restoring nature across these beautiful counties and empowering people to connect with their local wildlife.
As we work to manage habitats to tackle the nature and climate crises locally, we provide vital breathing spaces in a crowded world.
Our expert team work with more than 1,700 volunteers to look after 85 nature reserves and four education centres, run hundreds of amazing events, and campaign to make nature’s recovery a reality.
We’d love you to join us.
