The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country is one of 47 local trusts working to make the United Kingdom a better place for people and wildlife. With more than 800,000 members, the Wildlife Trusts are the largest UK voluntary organisation dedicated to conserving the full range of the UK’s habitats and species, whether they be in the countryside, in cities or at sea. Collectively they manage over 2,300 nature reserves covering more than 90,000 hectares.
Locally The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country works to conserve biodiversity, improve the environment and raise awareness and understanding of wildlife issues. We have over 7,000 members and have projects, nature reserves and environment centres across the area.
The Wildlife Trust works to create a Living Landscape in Birmingham and the Black Country for the benefit of wildlife and people. We team up with local people to help them take action to look after their local environment. We also work with and support friends groups for local nature reserves in all parts of Birmingham and the Black Country. The Trust has three environment centres which provide a focus for local schools and communities to learn about and experience the natural world. In partnership with Focus Housing Association in Birmingham the Wildlife Trust provides opportunities for some of their more vulnerable clients to get involved in active volunteering to care for local green spaces.
The Wildlife Trust relies on the support of volunteers to help manage our nature reserves. You can join our Conservation Projects team on our regular volunteer days where we can offer you the chance to learn new skills, have a fun day out and gain valuable experience working with wildlife and other people.
