Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust is working hard to halt the decline in our biodiversity, trying to prevent the loss or destruction of species-rich habitats – and we need your help!
Campaigning for Wildlife Fund
Our wildlife is facing a number of challenges from new developments which are being planned and discussed in our area. We feel strongly that we can play an important role in standing up for wildlife and giving it a voice in these discussions.
We have set up a Campaigning Fund which will help to pay for the professional expertise and the time we need to scrutinise planning applications and proposed developments to lodge objections and campaign against further damage to our valuable natural heritage.
Find out more by visiting our Campaigning for Wildlife Fund page.
You can also make a donation to us via Virgin Money Giving and mention ‘campaigning fund’ in the comments box.

After many years, we now have evidence that otters are returning to the rivers of Sheffield and Rotherham!
It is encouraging news, but this most secretive of mammals is difficult to spot and we do not have a full picture of their numbers, location and habits. The Otterly Amazing project aims to learn more about this charismatic species and help to deliver a series of habitat improvements along our rivers to encourage them to thrive here.
