Welcome to the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust
We are working to create a Living Landscape rich in wildlife, valued and enjoyed by all.
We do this through
- Protecting and enhancing wildlife and wild places
- Inspiring people about the natural world and encouraging everyone to take action for wildlife
- Standing up for wildlife and the natural environment
We need your support to help save the wildlife and wild places of Leicestershire and Rutland for everyone.
Becoming a member of the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust is the best way to support all areas of our work across the two counties. One off or regular donations are also a big help and are greatly appreciated.
