Take part in the Bugs Matter survey
Take part in this survey to help us understand wildlife declines. Insects are a critical component of our life support system. Without them clean air, water, food and a healthy environment are threatened. We need to act now to understand what is happening to them.
Share our Shores
Essex Wildlife Trust and the RSPB are working together to protect our coastal wildlife.
As the population of Essex grows, we must ensure we’re sharing the shore with our breeding wildlife, so that the tiny little tern, the ringed plover and the brightly beaked oystercatcher can grow up without disturbance.
