Cheshire Wildlife Trust is a grassroots movement of people from a wide range of backgrounds and all walks of life, who believe that we need nature and nature needs us. Together with our members and volunteers, we fight for nature’s recovery across the region.
We’ve been fighting for wildlife’s recovery for over 50 years.
Working across Cheshire, Halton, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Warrington and Wirral, we protect more than 30 nature reserves with habitats ranging from wildflower meadows, to coastal dunes, to ancient woodland.
We use our expertise to influence and advise landowners, farmers and councils on how to practically look after their land in the best way possible. Planting trees, reseeding wildflower meadows and reintroducing species plants and animals are just some of the ways we help each and every day. Working in collaboration with landowners means we’re able to protect huge swathes of land across the region.
With the weight of our 13,000 members, we lobbying local politicians to create the policies and laws needed to allow nature to recover across the UK. We’ve already been successful in getting areas of the Irish Sea protected for the first time ever. Now we must focus on lobbying our MPs to create legislation once we leave Europe in the form of robust Agriculture, Fisheries and Environment Acts.
Doing all this across our region whilst working in collaboration with neighbouring Wildlife Trusts, we’re in the unique position to be able to create the large scale networks needed for nature’s recovery.
