Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust
Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust is working to protect and enhance the wildlife and wild places of Leicestershire and Rutland and to engage people with nature.
The Trust does this by:
- Managing 33 nature reserves covering 1,229 hectares (3,033 acres), spread across Leicestershire and Rutland. Including woodlands, meadows, wetlands and heaths, these reserves contain a rich variety of animal and plant species, many rare.
- Offering everyone the chance to experience this wildlife by visiting these special places.
- Running activities and events throughout the year, everything from badger watches to the annual Birdfair.
- Investing in the future through training and educational programmes.
- Providing conservation advice and encouragement to other landowners and managers.
- Monitoring, studying and recording the wildlife of our counties to identify special places and important species, to inform land management and promote nature conservation, and to protect local biodiversity.
- Standing up for wildlife and working to protect threatened species and habitats.
We are dedicated to securing a better future for wildlife by helping people of all ages to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of nature.
We rely entirely on membership subscriptions, grants and fundraising for our income.
