Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust is the leading wildlife conservation charity working to protect and enhance the wildlife and wild places of Leicestershire and Rutland. For over 60 years we have been saving wildlife and engaging people with nature. We believe Leicestershire and Rutland should be rich in wildlife for the benefit of everyone - with more wildlife, more wild places and more people having a strong connection to nature.
"Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust plays a very important part in protecting our natural heritage. I would encourage anyone who cares about wildlife to join them."
