Welcome to the Irish Wildlife Trust

The Irish Wildlife Trust is a conservation charity committed to raising awareness of Ireland’s rich natural heritage and protecting it for future generations.

We rely on your support to continue our work so your membership really matters!  We need every member not only to support our campaigns, education programmes, research and managing our reserves, but every additional membership is an extra voice for nature conservation in Ireland and the louder we are, the more likely we are to be heard.

Join or donate today to make a real difference to Irish nature.  Members receive our quarterly award winning magazine ‘Irish Wildlife’ and free entry to the vast majority of our events held annually around the country.

Thank you for your support.
