Dorset Wildlife Trust

Dorset Wildlife Trust was founded in 1961 to protect the wild life and natural habitats of the county and now has over 22,000 members. One of its main activities is to acquire and manage nature reserves and it now has 42 reserves throughout Dorset. Most are open daily and there are visitor centres providing a wealth of wildlife information at Brownsea Island Nature Reserve, Purbeck Marine Nature Reserve, Lorton Meadows and Kingcombe Meadows.

DWT is the largest voluntary nature conservation organisation in Dorset, and plays a key role in dealing with local environmental issues. Through its recently announced Dorset Biodiversity Strategy, it is leading the way to establishing the practices of sustainable development with the co-operation not just of conservationists, but of local authorities, landowners, businesses, community groups and individuals across the county.
