About us

What we do

Our vision is for Shropshire to be alive with wildlife, loved by people and its wild places cherished.

We are the only voluntary organisation in the region concerned with all aspects of nature conservation. Shropshire has suffered from years of habitat destruction. We can help nature recover, but we rely on the support of our members to create an environment rich in wildlife, valued by all.

Shropshire Wildlife Trust is one of 46 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK. For more than 50 years we have worked with local people to make Shropshire rich in wildlife and protect special places for generations to come.

The Wildlife Trusts

Shropshire Wildlife Trust is part of The Wildlife Trust movement. There are 47 Wildlife Trusts across the whole of the UK, the Isle of Man and Alderney. With 825,000 members The Wildlife Trusts are the largest UK voluntary organisation dedicated to conserving the whole range of the UK's habitats and species.

Shropshire Wildlife Trust, along with each of the other 46 Wildlife Trusts, is an independent, autonomous charity with its own Trustees. We are a member of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts (RSWT) which operates as an umbrella organisation for all 47 Wildlife Trusts and helps coordinate campaigns at a national level. RSWT is a separate charity in its own right - we are not governed by RSWT.
