From soaring high kestrels to babbling chalkstreams, wildlife is an iconic part of our lives and gifts in wills can help Yorkshire Wildlife Trust protect some of our most precious species and habitats.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is encouraging wildlife-lovers to leave a legacy that will help protect species and habitats for future generations.
Across Yorkshire the Trust manages special wild places including wetlands, wildflower meadows and urban wildlife nature reserves. A gift in a will can play a vital role in allowing this work to continue.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Legacy Officer Jessica Thompson said: “A legacy received by the Trust has funded work to restore habitat and breeding sites for otter and water vole along with other struggling UK species.”
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust works to protect 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.”
Kate Barker, Membership and Legacies Manager for The 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. A clearly written will, kept updated throughout your life, is essential to ensure that your wishes are respected.”
