Essex Wildlife Trust Join Us at Easter

Essex Wildlife Trust is the county’s leading conservation charity.  It has more than 32,000 members, manages and protects over 7,250 acres of land on 87 nature reserves, 2 nature parks and runs 7 visitor centres. The aim of Essex Wildlife Trust is to Protect Wildlife for the Future.  It is supported financially by members, local businesses and grant making organisations.   It is one of the largest of the 47 county wildlife trusts that work together throughout the British Isles as The Wildlife Trusts.
Essex Wildlife Trust was established in 1959 and has grown from strength to strength, always striving to protect wildlife for the future and for the people of Essex.  You can join Essex Wildlife Trust, and visit for more information (and we urge you to do so). Now while you should join Essex Wildlife Trust, they actually came and joined Old Macdonald’s Farm for the week leading up to and including Good Friday, bringing a stand and display and talking to our many visitors. Great to welcome them, and look forward to their coming back again.

Our image shows a wild Essex Otter and not one of our Malaysian Short Clawed creatures (who only get wild if you do not pay them enough attention). What a vital task the Trust has to protect the wonderful Essex countryside and encourage you to appreciate the beauty of this lovely county.
