National Wildlife Week an annual programme of events to celebrate the diversity of the UK’s natural heritage and to raise awareness of conservation issues. It’s a chance for everyone to engage with wildlife by taking part in a local Wildlife Trust events and activities to interest all the family, such as owl encounters, badger, butterfly and bird walks, rockpool rambles, nature art workshops, talks about moths, bats and other creatures of the night or perhaps a visit to a working wildlife-friendly farm.

Wildlife Week is also a chance to discover first-hand The Wildlife Trusts’ valuable conservation work, such as projects to conserve otters and water voles, red squirrel havens or the campaign to save dolphins and basking sharks. The Trusts also play a crucial role in conserving and restoring rare habitats such as lowland raised bogs, chalk rivers, limestone pavements, woodlands, estuaries and salt marshes.
