Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust

The Trust's mission is the safeguarding of wildlife and wild places in Lincolnshire and the promotion of understanding and enjoyment of the natural world and the need to conserve it. There are three main strands to our work:

1. Establishment and management of nature reserves. We have 98 sites covering 3000 hectares. Most are open to the public and at four sites we have facilities including visitor centres, ehibitions, birdwatching hides and other interpretation: these are Snipe Dales, Whisby Nature Park, Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve and Far Ings National Nature Reserve.

2. Conservation planning, involving advice and input to local planning issues, local authority policy development, the Local Wildlife Sites scheme, biodiversity data and advocacy of sustainability.

3. Education and interpretation, including three education centres (mainly for schools use but also for adult courses) at Whisby, Gibraltar Point and Far Ings; interpretive boards and leaflets for many major nature reserves; the Wildlife Watch Club for junior members; and a full programme of countryside events including walks and talks.
