Suffolk Wildlife Trust

Suffolk Wildlife Trust is the county's leading conservation organisation. Our vision is for a Living Landscape, rich in wildlife; for everybody to enjoy.

Founded 1961

  • Mission statement

    Suffolk Wildlife Trust is the county's largest voluntary organisation dedicated to local nature conservation. We have 25,000 members and are part of a network of 47 Wildlife Trusts operating across the United Kingdom.

    We are committed to creating Living Landscapes that are rich in wildlife where species can expand their range and move out of protected sites into the wider countryside through networks of linked up habitat. With this in mind, we care for over 2300 hectares of Suffolk's most precious wildlife habitat in our 50 nature reserves (which are all free for anyone to enjoy), but also work proactively with landowners and local communities to advise them on how to improve their land for wildlife and offer a free advice service for individuals, the Suffolk Wildline. In addition we also review all planning applications that affect sites of wildlife interest and comment on strategic plans.

    People are at the heart of a Living Landscape and our four environmental centres provide educational opportunities for all ages, including wildlife courses for adults. Over 1000 people volunteer their time and skills to the Trust and support all areas of our work. Their commitment is key to our success.
