About Norfolk Wildlife Trust

Norfolk Wildlife Trust is the oldest Wildlife Trust in the country. The purchase of 400 acres of marsh at Cley on the north Norfolk coast in 1926 to be held ‘in perpetuity as a bird breeding sanctuary’ provided a blueprint for nature conservation which has now been replicated across the UK.

NWT has come a long way in 90 years. From humble beginnings we now:
  • have over 35,500 members, more than 100 corporate members, and eight thriving local members groups.
  • give conservation advice to a wide variety of organisations and individuals
  • provide education services for over 5,000 young people on school and university field trips each year.
  • run hundreds of informative and fun events at our reserves
  • care for over 50 nature reserves and other protected sites encompassing wetland, heathland, woodland and coastal habitats that provide a home for flagship species including otter, water vole, natterjack toad, bittern, common crane, marsh harrier, bearded tit, swallowtail and Norfolk hawker.

Our vision for Norfolk:
  • where the future of wildlife is protected and enhanced through sympathetic management
  • and people are connected with and inspired by Norfolk’s wildlife and wild spaces

Please browse the site to find out more about what we do and consider supporting our work for Norfolk’s wildlife.
