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.
Wild Lives at Rutland Water Appeal
We urgently need your help to raise £170,000 for a new Volunteer Training Centre at Rutland Water Nature Reserve.
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.
