Staffordshire Wildlife Trust campaigns on local and national issues that affect the county's wildlife and wild places.
High Speed Rail (HS2)
Staffordshire Wildlife Trust believes that the proposed route for HS2 will do irreparable damage to a number of Staffordshire's precious wild places and habitats that support threatened wildlife.
We are the leading environmental charity in the county fighting against the route being taken by HS2. Find out more about our campaigning work and information on the wildlife and wild places affected by the route.
Badgers and Bovine TB
Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is very conscious of the hardship that Bovine Tuberculosis (bTB) causes in the farming community and the need to find the right mechanisms to control the disease. However, we believe that a badger cull is not the answer.
We believe that bTB should be tackled by the following measures: cattle vaccination; badger vaccination and biosecurity - find out more about our views. The Trust is running a five year badger vaccination programme - find out about the programme and make a donation.
Last hedgehog in Staffordshire?
Sadly, over the last few decades, the UK’s hedgehog population has been declining rapidly. Some experts say they’re disappearing faster than the tiger.
Staffordshire Wildlife Trust sent out thousands of booklets to Staffordshire residents alerting them to the plight of hedgehogs and showing them how they can help - find out more.
Marine Conservation Zones (Living Seas campaign)
Along with all Wildlife Trusts, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is campaigning for the creation of a coherent network of Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) around the UK.
MCZs are like marine nature reserves - areas of sea in which human activities are restricted, safeguarding important habitats and wildlife. Find out more about The Wildlife Trusts' Living Seas campaign.
