An overview of Durham Wildlife Trust and our work from the Tees up to the Tyne. Introducing ourselves, Durham Wildlife Trust. For 50 years Durham Wildlife Trust has been the leading conservation organisation dedicated to our local area. The very best and most direct way to support wildlife where you live is to support your local Wildlife Trust. Durham Wildlife Trust works to protect, enhance and promote wildlife and nature conservation in South Tyneside, Sunderland, Darlington, Gateshead and County Durham. Please join us today.

The Wildlife Trusts play a very important part in protecting our natural heritage. I would encourage anyone who cares about wildlife to join them.
