Essex Wildlife Trust protects wildlife through landscape conservation, education on our nature reserves and discovery centres and campaigns that help to give wildlife a greater voice in our county.
We are the county’s leading conservation charity, committed to protecting wildlife and inspiring a lifelong love of nature. We manage nature reserves and discovery parks across the county, providing outstanding outdoor education and preserving places of wonder.
Founded in 1959 by volunteers, we protect over 8,400 acres of land across 87 sites and are supported by 39,000 members. Our climate is in crisis and our species face extinction. The natural world needs our help.
We are a local wildlife charity supported by over 1900 volunteers and over 38,000 members. Together we protect and care for wildlife and wild places across Essex.
Essex Wildlife Trust was established in 1959 and has grown from strength to strength, always striving to protect wildlife for the future and for the people of Essex.
Together we can protect the future. Join us.
