NWT

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.

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
