The Norfolk Wildlife Trust
The Norfolk Wildlife Trust is a local Norfolk charity, with an incredible visitor centre just down the road from Blakeney at Cley Next The Sea.
The Norfolk Wildlife Trust is the oldest Wildlife Trust in the country. It all started in 1926 when they purchased 400 acres of marsh land at Cley next the Sea on the North Norfolk coast just down the road from Blakeney and so their journey of wildlife conservation began.
They are now one of the leading wildlife charities I n England and give advice to other charities on wildlife conservation.
They have a fantastic visitor centre at Cley which we highly recommend you visit if you are staying on a holiday or short break in North Norfolk. The visitor centre is free to visit and has amazing view out over Cley marshes.
As well as Clay the charity also cares for over 50 other nature reserves in Norfolk and other protected sites including wetlands similar to Cley, heathland, woodland and coastal habitats.
Their work protects many endangered species that Norfolk is home to including otters, water voles, natterjack toad, bittern, common crane, marsh harriers, bearded tit, swallowtail butterflies and the spectacular Norfolk hawker dragonfly.
This year has been a difficult year for most charities as many of their usual methods of fundraising have been limited by Covid-19 restrictions. This year we are partnering with the. Norfolk Wildlife Trust by becoming a corporate sponsor.
