About Essex Wildlife Trust

Essex Wildlife Trust is the largest conservation charity in the county and one of the biggest of the 47 county wildlife trusts that work together throughout the British Isles as The Wildlife Trusts. The Trust has been protecting Essex for wildlife and people since 1959 and is working hard to restore, recreate and rebuild Living Landscapes, which will enable species and people to move through a wildlife-rich countryside. Without financial support from members and partners like you we would not be able to carry out our important conservation work, nor inspire the people of Essex to cherish their wildlife.

The natural environment is no different from your business environment. It needs management, care, expertise, effort – and it needs you.

Take a look around you and you will see what a beautiful county we live in – the ancient woodlands, historic and picturesque villages and our long and internationally important coastline. It is too easy to take this for granted but, if we do, it may be lost forever.

Our proximity to London and our growing links to the rest of the world through Stansted and Harwich, plus expansion along the M11 corridor and Thames Gateway, mean that our natural environment is under pressure.

While we want the prosperity that such developments can offer, we also need to protect some of the many areas in our county that are invaluable to people and wildlife. We wish to build working partnerships with businesses to prevent loss of habitat, species and green spaces, while recognising legitimate needs

Why join The Wildlife Trusts?

"There are plenty of great reasons but I’ll give you three. They are vocal, they are visible and they are value for money. The Wildlife Trusts are all about getting involved at a local level. Essex Wildlife Trust works within your community and is looking after wildlife in your backyard. That means you benefit from it, so show your support at a local level. You’ll be supporting the future, both of wildlife and of everyone in Essex – and in the whole of the UK, too.”

Chris Packham,
Broadcaster, Naturalist and a Vice President of The Wildlife Trusts
