From owls to otters and badgers to bees, being surrounded by the wonders of nature makes us happier and healthier.
Wildlife has a special place in all our hearts.
But sadly, habitat loss, agriculture and climate change has resulted in a 56% decline in UK wildlife. (2016 State of Nature Report)
We depend on our members so that we can continue our vital work in Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside.
We are already making a difference
We work on your doorstep to create and connect habitats to give wildlife a chance to thrive and wild spaces for people to enjoy.
We carry out conservation work, campaign to protect species and habitats on land and at sea, and teach people of all ages about the natural world, and how to care for it.
Help to keep our region wild!
The threat is real, and unless we act now the wildlife and wild places become a thing of the past. If you are passionate about conserving wildlife please support your local Wildlife Trust in Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside.
We depend on our members so that we can continue our vital work in the region:
- We look after 38 nature reserve sites in our region. That's over 1,300 hectares we are protecting for wildlife
- Our campaigning has seen the Marine Bill prioritised, key habitats and species protected
- We inspire over 30,000 children in our area every year
It is easy and hassle free to set up a Direct Debit to pay for your membership and also helps us to reduce our administration costs, meaning more of your funds directly support Lancashire's wildlife.
Our minimum membership rates are :
- Individual or joint membership from £2.50 per month
- Family membership from £3.50 per month
Every penny you donate above the minimum means we can continue to protect Lancashire's wildlife and wild places both now and for future generations.
We will send you a welcome pack with a guide to the best wild places to visit and an introduction to our work. Keep up to date with our membership magazine and e-news where you will find opportunities to get involved.
