For 40 years The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country has been protecting wildlife, restoring wild spaces and inspiring people for natures recovery across Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

Wildlife is in trouble. 41% of UK species are in decline and we are in the midst of the largest extinction event on Earth since the dinosaurs. In the UK we have lost 97% of the wildflower meadows we had in the 1930s and hedgehog numbers have fallen from 30 million in 1950 to just 1 million now.

90% of plant species need animal pollination and we rely on bees for every third mouthful of food we eat.

We look after 7 nature reserves and 2 Environmental Education Centres where each year thousands of local children enjoy a wild lesson or club. Just last year we improved 63 wild spaces, that's over 1,500 hectares of habitat for wildlife to thrive.

The next 40 years are going to be tough. The UK today is a human-dominated landscape. Most original habitats have gone, and natural ecosystems are fragmented. Woods, meadows, ponds and other places with lots of wild plants and animals are getting smaller, fewer, more polluted, and more cut-off from each other. Most of our plants and animals are declining. One in ten face extinction.

With unparalled population growth putting pressure on land and natural resources along with our changing climate, it is more important than ever that together, we stand up for wildlife and our precious wild spaces.

Donate today to help us reverse local wildlife decline.
