The Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts has more than 800,000 members. They are the largest UK voluntary organisation dedicated to protecting wildlife at land and sea.
They stand up for, and look after, natural and wild places close to where people live. The Wildlife Trusts manage more than 95,000 hectares of land, across around 2,300 individual locations. But they're not just about land management. Every day they work to help people from all walks of life discover and enjoy nature. They run over 11,000 events a year, helping more than 380,000 people connect with nature in their local patch. They also work with about 5,200 schools each year and welcome people to more than 120 visitor centres. Through their work, they also advise more than 5,300 landowners on how to manage over 200,000 hectares of land for wildlife.
I think we can all agree that this is hugely impressive and worthwhile charity, and we welcome them to The Toggies fundraising family.
They will be added to the website in the coming weeks for entrants to make donations to. Thanks all,
- The Toggies Team
