Who we are

Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust is the leading nature conservation charity in the two counties.

For more than 50 years, we have protected local wildlife and inspired people to love nature. No other organisation, local or national, does more to protect the wildlife and wild places of Hampshire, the Island and our local seas. 

  • Our 27,000 members and 900 volunteers share our belief that nature is important, and that we can all do something to help protect the wildlife on our doorstep.

  • Our members say that they trust us to spend money wisely. 86 pence of every pound we spend goes directly to our conservation, education and research programmes.

  • We are part of a UK-wide partnership of 47 Wildlife Trusts with a collective membership of more than 800,000 people. Together, we are the nation’s most active and influential nature conservation partnership, protecting wildlife in every part of the UK.
