Who we are

Dorset Wildlife Trust is the largest conservation charity in Dorset with over 25,000 members. We are committed to ensuring that there is a secure future for Dorset’s nature - its distinctive wildlife and natural spaces. We use a sound evidence base, influence and wide practical experience of land management and marine conservation to inspire, inform and engage people in Dorset.

Through our guidance we help others to carry forward policies that are beneficial for nature within both the rural and urban economy. We provide opportunities for everyone to appreciate and understand Dorset's unparalleled natural heritage, and strives to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy a quality of life at least as rich and diverse as we have now.

We do this in Dorset through co-operating in partnerships and also regionally and nationally, through our affiliation with 46 other County Trusts within the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts. Find out more at The Wildlife Trusts website and the South West Wildlife Trusts website.
