There are eight local Wildlife Trusts that surround the Irish Sea. Together, we are the largest voluntary organisation dedicated to protecting wildlife and wild places, across the UK and Isle of Man, in the countryside, in cities and at sea.
The Wildlife Trusts - Irish Sea
Each Wildlife Trust is an independent charity is deeply-rooted within the local communities from which it was formed - most were established by local activists determined to save what they could - the last remaining meadows, ancient woods, heaths - in the face of widespread devastation to our natural environment.
We are supported by over 115,000 members, and building on more than 30 years of experience, we are leading the way in marine conservation. At a countrywide-level our campaigns have played a pivotal role in convincing the UK and devolved Governments to pass new laws to protect our seas. Across the Irish Sea, we are inspiring people about marine wildlife and carrying out vital research to help protect basking sharks, dolphins, seals and a whole host of rare and fragile habitats.
