Adopt a Species

You Can Save Today’s Wildlife For Tomorrow. Our annual appeal returns. There are some exciting new species and old favourites!

With 6 species to choose from, it could be the perfect gift! 

Adopt a Species Appeal is aiming to raise £25,000 towards Essex Wildlife Trust’s core conservation work across the county.

What's on

Our visitor centres organise a regular programme of events and activities for adults and families. The Trust has fourteen Local Groups across the county that organise a programme of walks and talks for local members. Non-members are welcome at these events. Booking is essential for most centre events, so make sure you call or visit the centre in advance to avoid disappointment.
