Essex Wildlife Trust is the county’s leading conservation charity. It has more than 32,000 members, manages and protects over 8,200 acres of land on 87 nature reserves.
We want to show how much nature matters to all our lives, so we’re showcasing hundreds of stories from all walks of life to show how nature is helping us all, every day.
Now in its fourth year, we hope to bring you another tale of family fortunes from our Barn Owl nest box at our Blue House Farm nature reserve
Collecting species records is an essential part of Essex Wildlife Trust’s work. Now, recording wildlife is even easier, with the launch of our new recording website.
You Can Save Today’s Wildlife For Tomorrow. Our annual appeal returns. There are some exciting new species and old favourites!
