A century of action for wildlife is marked by the first comprehensive history of The Wildlife Trusts – including the individual history of Northumberland Wildlife Trust.
With more than 500 stunning photographs, maps and fascinating ephemera, Wildlife in Trust charts the changing fortunes of UK wildlife and the local nature conservation movement founded to protect it and would make an ideal Christmas present for any wildlife lover.
Author Tim Sands recounts stories of local activism, visionary leaders, hard-fought campaigns, organisational growing pains and battles lost and won.
Wildlife in Trust is divided into three sections with a history of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts, individual histories of all 47 trusts in their own words and a reference section.
The Northumberland Wildlife Trust chapter was written by Dr Angus Lunn, trustee and vice-president of the wildlife charity and one of its original founders.
