From cuckoos to curlews to chalkstreams, gifts in wills can help Yorkshire Wildlife Trust protect some of our most precious species and habitats.
During Will for Wildlife Week, from Monday 15 to Sunday 21 October, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is encouraging wildlife-lovers to leave a legacy that will help protect nature for future generations.
Across the county, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust manages special wild places including wetlands, wildflower meadows and urban wildlife nature reserves. A gift in someone’s will can play a vital role in allowing this work to continue. A legacy received by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has funded work to restore habitat and breeding sites for otters, one of the most endangered species in the UK.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust works to protect our species and habitats which are under threat and gifts in wills, of any size, can help with this work. Someone who remembers Yorkshire Wildlife Trust in their will could help to create a new nature reserve for wild creatures to colonise and for people to enjoy, help with work to protect a specific species, such as erecting nest boxes for swifts, or support our work to educate and empower local communities to take action for wildlife.
Sir David Attenborough, President Emeritus of The Wildlife Trusts, said: ‘A legacy to your local Wildlife Trust is a very special gift that can do remarkable things to help the wildlife treasures on your doorstep. Please, consider remembering The Wildlife Trusts in your will.’
Jessica Thompson, Development Officer for Yorkshire Wildlife Trusts, added: ‘We believe many people would like to write, or update, their will to reflect their current situation but simply haven’t got round to it yet. A clearly written will, kept updated throughout your life, is essential to ensure that your wishes are respected.’
