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.  

We care for 35 nature reserves covering 3,044 acres. From woodland to meadows, wetland to heaths, the Trust’s nature reserves provide protection for an amazing diversity of wildlife, some rare and threatened.

We run activities and events throughout the year, everything from badger watches to the annual Birdfair.

We invest in the future through training and educational programmes.

Provide conservation advice and encouragement to other landowners and managers.

Monitor, study and record 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.

We stand up for wildlife and work 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. 

In order to continue our work we rely entirely on membership subscriptions, grants and fundraising for our income.  If you would like to help us, please click on the ‘make a donation tab’ or why not organise your own event and get your friends and family to sponsor you? Click on ‘Start fundraising’ to set up your own fundraising page.
