Giving nature a voice

The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust has a long history of campaigning for positive change for nature and people. Find current and previous campaigns below, and help us give nature a voice.

Stop the badger cull

 

This September, the UK Government is due to make an announcement on new areas for badger culling. There is great concern that Lincolnshire will be included as one of these areas for the first time.

Lincolnshire is classed as a low risk area for bTB by the Government’s own agency. With a decision due in mid-September, we only have a few weeks to change the Government's mind and ensure that the badger cull is not extended. Sign our petition to ask your MP to stop the badger cull coming to Lincolnshire.

Action for Insects

 

The UK's insect populations are in trouble: 41% face extinction. To save them, we need to act quickly. The Wildlife Trusts are calling for everyone to be insect champions and for a pesticide reduction target to help them recover.

Find out how you can help insects by downloading our free guide showing you how you can take action at home, in your garden and in your community.

The Wildlife Trusts

#WilderLincolnshire

 

Sadly, since we first met Badger, Ratty and friends in 1908, the UK has become one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world. The Wildlife Trusts have re-imagined Wind in the Willows in 2019, shedding light on some of the problems our wildlife faces every day. We've reached a point where our natural world is in a critical condition and needs our help to put it into recovery.

It's not too late to bring our wildlife back, but we must act now! Join the campaign and receive simple actions you can take for nature's recovery.

Bunting

#70YearsWild

 

This year, the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust celebrated its 70 year anniversary! To celebrate, we asked for local crafters to help us create 70 bunting flags - one for each year of the Trust - which they feel represented Lincolnshire, it's wildlife, or the Trust. Take a look at their creations exhibited at Gibraltar Point, and see how we fundraised with a #BakeforWildlife!

Marine Conservation Zones

 

We campaigned to try and secure the designation of 41 new Marine Conservation Zones in the waters around England, and for living seas where marine wildlife thrives. Take a look at why they're worth campaigning for, and how you can show your wave of support.
