Northumberland Wildlife Trust was founded in 1971 to protect wildlife and promote nature conservation within Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland. Today, our voice for wildlife is stronger than ever.


We inspire people...
We provide environmental education opportunities to schools and local communities, to inspire them to stand up for wildlife and get them closer to the natural world.


We manage habitats...
We look after over 60 nature reserves in Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland, to create homes for wildlife and maintain beautiful places to visit and enjoy throughout the year.


We protect wildlife...
We safeguard native wildlife by creating and maintaining habitat on our reserves, conducting surveys, advising landowners and campaigning against development on green spaces.


We work with volunteers...
We engage with over 150 volunteers across a range of tasks, from tree planting to conducting surveys, planning fundraising activities and assisting with events and education sessions.
