Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust
Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is the county's leading conservation charity run by local people for the benefit of local wildlife, with over 70 nature reserves - part of a UK network of 47 local Wildlife Trusts working to protect wildlife.
Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust serves as the first line of defence for wild species and habitats in the county. We campaign tirelessly for wildlife, protecting threatened habitats such as wildflower meadows and species such as otters and water voles. We influence government policy and local planning decisions that affect the future of wildlife and the quality of our environment. Our efforts also help to secure positive gains by linking, extending and restoring important habitats.
Since 1963 we have been standing up Nottinghamshireâ€™s wildlife and representing the views of people who care passionately about our countyâ€™s wild places.
We are working to protect several species that were once common in the countryside, including: tree sparrow, linnet, yellowhammer, reed bunting and corn bunting.
The majority of people live less than five miles from their nearest Wildlife Trust nature reserve, and tens of thousands of you can find one less than one mile from your home!
