Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust manages 48 nature reserves for wildlife conservation, these are important places for wildlife in our two counties.
Many of our nature reserves are of national and international importance for wildlife, and are great places for people to visit to see wildlife. Managing nature reserves helps us achieve our vision for a Living Landscape.
We organise over 200 events a year on our nature reserves - everything from guided walks to family activity days.
Thinking of taking your dog to one of our nature reserves?
Our nature reserves are managed for the benefit of wildlife. Whilst some of our reserves do allow dogs, the sensitive wildlife can often be disturbed by dogs and so we ask you to act responsibly during your visit. Find out more about being a responsible dog walker here and on the individual reserve pages.
