Essex Wildlife Trust
The Essex Wildlife Trust is a charity that is focused on the preservation of wild environment and wildlife. Run largely by volunteers, the Trust is part of a network of other similar charitable enterprises across the UK known as The Wildlife Trusts.
As a charity the Essex Wildlife Trust relies on donations from visitors and members, and runs a corporate membership scheme so that organisations such as ours can do their bit. Not only are we Silver Members of the Corporate Membership Scheme, but one of our employees is a regular volunteer with the Hanningfield Reservoir site. The Hanningfield Reservoir site is known for hosting thousands of Pipistrelle Bats each year and making vast strides in the protection of the species. More: www.essexwt.org.uk
