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.

Support us

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.
