Leave a Legacy

A gift in your will can help us achieve our vision to conserve wildlife and so safeguard those beautiful wild places that you visit and care about and ensure their future.


Making a will is very important and ensures that your wishes are known. Once your loved ones are cared, please consider leaving a gift for Durham Wildlife. Your gift, however big or small, will make a difference and help to protect wonderful nature reserves that you love to visit.


At Durham Wildlife Trust, we have been fortunate to receive many gifts.


Ragpath Heath Nature Reserve, a beautiful site, rich in wildlife was generously left to us in 2007.

Using a cash gift we bought a mobility scooter for Low Barns Nature Reserve. The scooter is frequently used and helps those with limited mobility to get around the reserve.


Generous legacies made Project Redshank at Rainton Meadows happen. By creating muddy lake margins on the reserves lakes new habitats was created for wading birds, such as redshank, oystercatcher, lapwing and little ringed plover.

Over the years, the generosity of many people, by thinking about Durham Wildlife Trust and kindly leaving a gift, has had a major impact on local wildlife. A legacy gives reassurance that places you care about will be there for future generations to enjoy.
