About us

About us

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

We are the only charitable organisation in the county focused solely on nature conservation in Shropshire. Ours is a beautiful county, but nature here has suffered decades of destruction, just as it has elsewhere.

We need your support to help turn our vision of nature recovery into reality. Shropshire Wildlife Trust is one of 46 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK. For nearly 60 years we have worked to protect Shropshire’s special places and wildlife for generations to come.

Our guiding principle is to restore a network of wild places throughout the county, enabling nature to flourish and giving people green space to enjoy close to their homes. We campaign locally and nationally to protect and restore Shropshire's natural heritage.

The Wildlife Trusts

Shropshire Wildlife Trust is part of The Wildlife Trust movement. There are 46 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 is an independent, autonomous charity with its own Trustees.
