  • Mission statement

    Worcestershire - part of a UK richer in wildlife, where everyone can appreciate, enjoy and help restore and protect wildlife for the future.

    We have more than 75 nature reserves across the county that form part of our vision for a Living Landscape. By working with other landowners, managers and communities we aim to restore, recreate and reconnect fragmented natural habitats to achieve a landscape where wildlife can flourish and people can lead healthier and happier lives.

    We take action for wildlife by:

    Caring for over 75 nature reserves - woods, heaths, pools, marshes and meadows of national and international importance. Protecting endangered species such as otters, dormice and butterflies. Restoring and recreating wildlife habitats on derelict and agricultural land. Campaigning to prevent damaging developments. Helping local authorities, organisations and individuals to protect and create places for the county's wildlife. Maintaining a unique local information base. Inspiring thousands of children through our work with schools and other organisations. Working with local communities to encourage appreciation and enjoyment of our natural environment. Encouraging and supporting over 370 volunteers involved in all aspects of our work.
