Who we are

North Wales Wildlife Trust is one of 46 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK. With the invaluable support of volunteers and members we manage 35 nature reserves in north Wales. We also work with other organisations and landowners to protect and connect wildlife sites across the county and inspire local communities and young people to care for wildlife where they live.

The Wildlife Trusts play a very important part in protecting our natural heritage. I would encourage anyone who cares about wildlife to join them.

Our history

North Wales Naturalist's Trust was formed on October 26th 1963. Over 50 years later our name may have changed, but the motivation that inspired our founders remains the same. Over the years the number of reserves cared for by the Trust has grown steadily, now covering over 750 hectares, thanks to gifts of land and site purchases through fundraising. We now employ over 40 members of staff and manage a budget of over £2.5M - a far cry from our humble beginnings.

Meet our people

Our wildlife conservation work is only possible through a collaborative effort between our trustees, volunteers and staff. We are motivated by our collective belief that a North Wales rich in wildlife and valued by all, is good for both wildlife and people.
