Leave a natural legacy

From cuckoos to curlews to chalkstreams, gifts in wills can help Northumberland Wildlife Trust protect some of our most precious species and habitats.
During Will for Wildlife Week, from Monday 15 to Sunday 21 October, Northumberland Wildlife Trust is encouraging wildlife-lovers to leave a legacy that will help protect nature for future generations.
Across Northumberland, Newcastle and North Tyneside, the wildlife charity manages special wild places including wetlands, wildflower meadows and urban wildlife nature reserves. A gift in someone’s will can play a vital role in allowing the Trust to work to protect the region’s species and habitats which are under threat and gifts in wills, of any size, can help with this work.
Someone who remembers the wildlife charity in their will could help to create a new nature reserve for wild creatures to colonise and for people to enjoy, help with work to protect a specific species, such as erecting nest boxes for swifts, or support our work to educate and empower local communities to take action for wildlife.
Sir David Attenborough, President Emeritus of The Wildlife Trusts, said: “A legacy to your local Wildlife Trust is a very special gift that can do remarkable things to help the wildlife treasures on your doorstep. Please, consider remembering The Wildlife Trusts in your will.”
