Avon Wildlife Trust is the largest local charity working to protect wildlife in the West of England area (formerly the County of Avon – Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire).
With the support of over 17,000 members, 1500 volunteers and corporate support, we are the largest local charity working to protect wildlife and inspire people. We care for 36 nature reserves, from ancient bluebell woods to Iron Age forts, nationally important wetlands, and wildflower meadows. We run award-winning educational and community programmes. And we work with landowners in the wider countryside, to reduce the decline in wildlife by creating a Living Landscape.
Avon Wildlife Trust is part of The Wildlife Trust movement. There are 47 independent Wildlife Trusts across the whole of the UK, the Isle of Man and Alderney. With 825,000 members, The Wildlife Trusts are t
The largest UK voluntary organisation dedicated to conserving the whole range of the UK’s habitats and species on land and at sea.
Each Wildlife Trust is an independent charity which is deeply-rooted within the local communities from which it was formed. Avon Wildlife Trust was established in 1980 as one of the first urban Trusts in the country.
