Wider Conservation

Norfolk Wildlife Trust is an influential voice in public debate. Representing the views of our membership, we seek to influence local decision-makers about the value of nature.

In particular, we have a focus on promoting:

  • A Living Landscape and Living Seas and the benefits to people and wildlife;
  • Support and funding needs to allow us to achieve our Vision;
  • Policy changes needed to support nature’s recovery.
