Protecting the wildlife where you live

Northumberland Wildlife Trust has been saving wildlife and wild places and helping people to get closer to nature since 1971.

Connecting people with nature...
We provide a range of educational events and activities for adults, families and schools at our visitor centres and nature reserves, to get people to value the natural world and stand up for wildlife.  

Caring for landscapes...
We look after over 60 nature reserves in Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland; places where wildlife can survive and thrive.

Protecting wildlife...
We manage habitat on our reserves, advise other landowners, run projects to help endangered animals and plants and campaign against development on green spaces.

Working with volunteers...
Over 600 volunteers support nature conservation, from tree planting to conducting surveys, planning fundraising activities and assisting with events and education sessions.
