From the wild north coast to the sandy heaths of Breckland, the Norfolk Broads to ancient woodlands, Norfolk’s diverse habitats are home to a stunning variety of wildlife.

Joining us today makes a real difference to Norfolk.  Your support helps us protect the future of that wildlife and helps us inspire people to value nature.

  • On a Family membership, children (age 16 and under) do not receive a membership card as they do not need to show proof of membership

Membership renewals during the Coronavirus emergency

We are fortunate to have more than 36,000 members, who support our work protecting wildlife and helping people to experience and learn about the natural world. Membership subscriptions are vital for the work we do saving wildlife and have a huge impact on what we achieve every year. This income becomes even more significant in the current situation when we have had to close our visitor centres and stop other fundraising activities. 

We know that the priority for all of us right now is overcoming the immediate challenges we face. In this unprecedented crisis, we truly appreciate those members who feel they can continue with their subscriptions, and particularly as renewals may fall in these next few uncertain weeks and months. However, our greatest wish is that you do the right thing for you and your household and we appreciate that this may affect your decision to support us.
We hope these measures below will help our members during this difficult time.
 1. We are postponing our planned subscription increases
Members may be aware of a proposed increase in our minimum subscription rates, due to take effect from 1 April 2020.  This increase which would have been our first in three years, will now be postponed for six months.  All members renewing or paying monthly during this period will pay the same rate as they did in 2019.

2. We want to help you stay close to wildlife and feel uplifted by nature
We would also like to offer help to any members wishing to renew but finding themselves in financial difficulty due to the crisis, and ask you to email us to discuss your particular circumstances. 

We understand that cancelling events and closing nature reserves and visitor centres affects our members’ enjoyment and regular interaction with wildlife. When we are able to, later in the year, we really want to make this up to you and are currently thinking of what we can do to give you added value then.  Please do expect us to be in touch as the year progresses as you are valuable to us in all that we do.

We will continue to offer our other membership benefits as much as we can during the crisis, including Tern magazine, e-newsletters, and updates online about how nature progresses gloriously into spring and summer. We are also creating online resources to help children at home continue to enjoy and learn about nature. 

Renewal and new membership administration

While our membership team is working remotely for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis, there will be some impact on the materials you receive. For all members renewing, we will be unable to produce and dispatch new membership cards for the time being. 

For online renewals: we will confirm your new period of membership and number via email, which will then be your proof of renewed membership.  

For those renewing by post: we will send you an email or letter instead of a new membership card. 
New members will have their membership confirmed in the same way as renewals, and unfortunately we will be unable to dispatch new membership packs for the time being. We will of course send these as soon as possible. 
Unfortunately we are not able to offer new Gift Membership at this time but hope that these will resume later this summer.

Membership access online

At the moment we are not able to offer the facility for existing members to log in to their membership details and amend details such as name and address. As this requires significant security systems to be in place in order to protect your personal details, it is currently too costly for us to consider. We aim to put as many of our funds as possible directly into wildlife conservation.

To renew a membership, visit here and enter your details as if for a new membership. We will identify you as an existing member when we check your details, and there is space to enter your membership number.

To notify us of a change of address or other details, or many any other changes to your membership, email us or call the office on 01603 625540.
