For nearly a century, Norfolk Wildlife Trust has been committed to the conservation of Norfolk’s wildlife: a commitment expressed in land acquisition, habitat restoration, education, engagement and advocacy. Our passionate belief is that the wildlife of Norfolk deserves a healthy landscape in which to thrive and that people deserve the same.

• We are supported by more than 35,000 members, about a third of which are outside Norfolk. Of all the Wildlife Trusts, we have the fourth largest membership.

• We manage the Norfolk County Wildlife Sites systems, where more than 1,300 sites covering 15,000 hectares. • We have more than 100 businesses enrolled in our Investors in Wildlife scheme.

• Committed volunteers support every aspect of our work, from wildlife surveying to administration.

• We have five visitor centres and a thriving education centre offering events, workshops and exhibitions.

• More than 7,000 students annually take part in education activities in schools and on nature reserves.

• We are active participants in the mission of The Wildlife Trusts to secure 30 per cent of our land and sea for nature’s recovery by 2030.
