Durham Wildlife Trust


Durham Wildlife Trust’s purpose is to protect wildlife and promote nature conservation in County Durham, the City of Sunderland and the Boroughs of Gateshead, South Tyneside and Darlington.

We are one of the most active environmental organisations in the region, managing 24 nature reserves, a variety of species and habitat recovery projects and four Visitor Centres. We also run an environmental education programme that aims to engage schools, community groups, whole communities and individuals in issues around nature conservation and the wider environment.
