About Derbyshire Wildlife Trust
Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is one of 47 local Trusts which are based around the UK. Our aim is to promote and protect wildlife.
We currently manage 43 nature reserves. Notably, our work is focused on moorland, wetlands, woodlands and wildflower meadows. Additionally, we are the only organisation in Derbyshire working to protect all wildlife across the whole county.
A Living Landscape
Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is working with local businesses, landowners, communities and individuals on large-scale habitat restoration and enhancement. Consequently, this will create a healthier environment not only for wildlife but for the local economy and people too.
We’re restoring wildlife habitats by repairing and joining up damaged and fragmented blocks of woodland, meadows and marshes. Also, we’ll reconnect a countryside made richer in wildlife with pockets of wildness in our cities, towns and villages. Furthermore, our aim is to rebuild the natural world. Making it more robust so that it can cope with future environmental threats and changes.
Ultimately, A Living Landscape means the revival of the land we love, and of people’s love for the land where they live.
We have eight Living Landscape schemes in the county:
- Derwent Valley
- Dove Valley
- Erewash Valley
- Limestone Dales and Wye (White Peak)
- Linacre and Northern Peak Fringe
- Rose End Meadows and Carsington Grassland
- Rother and Doe Lea
- Transforming the Trent Valley
Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is a Registered Charity. Additionally, its supported by more than 14,000 members. However, we would welcome your support too!
