Who we are

The wildlife conservation charity dedicated to protecting all species and habitats in Newcastle, Northumberland and North Tyneside.

The North East’s unique variety of animals, plants and landscapes is increasingly under pressure from climate change, development on green spaces, intensive farming and pollution. There have been dramatic declines in red squirrels, water voles, barn owls and black grouse in just one generation.

Northumberland Wildlife is committed to halting this decline in a number of ways. We manage over 60 local nature reserves and run projects which help threatened species.

We work in partnership with companies, local authorities, communities, landowners, volunteers and other organisations to manage the landscape positively for wildlife and people.

The Trust acts as the ‘voice of wildlife’ with local planners and developers. It is there to influence government policy at national level. Collectively The Wildlife Trusts lobbied the government successfully over the recently enacted Marine Bill, which will establish Marine Protected Areas around the North East coast.

We educate thousands of people about nature each year, working directly with schools, running special events and clubs, and providing information. We believe the key to success is getting as many people involved in caring for their own environment, connecting local people with local places.

We receive no direct government funding and rely on our supporters for much of our income. Without you we couldn’t do what we do. It’s a small price to pay for enriching our lives and ensuring that we protect what we have and pass it on to future generations.
