Wildlife Trusts

Young trees in protective tubes

County Wildlife Trusts for Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire and Rutland operate within The National Forest area. The Trusts aim to protect and manage areas of existing nature conservation interest through the acquisition or leasing of sites as nature reserves.

The Wildlife Trusts would generally only be interested in taking on sites which already have some nature conservation interest.

Priority would be given to Sites of Special Scientific Interest, or Wildlife Sites or Sites of Biological Interest as identified on County Ecological Records and in Local Plans/Development Frameworks.

Leicestershire Wildlife Trust and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust would also consider sites with substantial potential for habitat creation.
