Our nature reserves

Together The Wildlife Trusts care for 2,300 diverse and beautiful nature reserves where wildlife is protected and wild plants and animals thrive. 216 of those are in Wales. These include ancient woodlands, lakes, meadows, stretches of river, urban parks, hills, heather-clad heathlands, marshes and coastal habitats. Nearly all of our nature reserves are free to enter and nearly all have public access to parts of the site.

Finding a nature reserve near you

Most people live within a few miles of one of our nature reserves so you should be able to find a Wildlife Trust nature reserve near you.
