Northern Ireland's largest local conservation charity, Ulster Wildlife (operating name of Ulster Wildlife Trust) has been standing up for local wildlife and wild places for almost 40 years.
Our wildlife and wild places are under serious pressure from housing, climate change, pollution and changes in land use and management of our coastal waters. While at the same time, a healthy environment is essential for the continued health and prosperity of, not only wildlife, but our society.
Through our twin visions - Living Landscapes and Living Seas - we aim to restore, recreate, reconnect our damaged countryside and to campaign for seas in which wildlife thrives, from the depths of the ocean to our coastal shallows.
Ulster Wildlife has over 12,000 members. We are one of 47 Wildlife Trusts across the UK. The Wildlife Trusts partnership is the largest UK voluntary movement dedicated to protecting the full range of our native habitats and species. Individual Wildlife Trusts - like Ulster Wildlife - work for wildlife at a local and together we have a powerful national voice.
Ulster Wildlife aims to:
- Inspire people to champion wildlife by understanding and valuing nature
- Protect and rebuild biodiversity and ecosystems by investing in practical action & research
- Stand up for nature by influencing government policy
- Promote health & well-being through enjoyment of the natural environment
- Grow our success and extend our reach
