Wildlife protection on a huge scale
The Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts stand up for, and look after, natural and wild places close to where people live. They manage more than 95,000 hectares of land, across around 2,300 individual locations. But they are 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 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.
