What does AWT do?

The Alderney Wildlife Trust is the only wildlife conservation organisation in Alderney ad also the only Wildlife Trust in the Channel Islands. We aim to preserve Alderney's environment for future generations by protecting and restoring key species and habitats on the island.

These include lots of our most famous wildlife including the seabirds and their habitat within the Ramsar site.

AWT does this by managing habitats (making sure rarer habitats like heath stay the same and are supporting the species that can only live there by removing plants like bracken and bramble), undertaking survey and monitoring work to see trends in species numbers, advising on planned developments to see how they could work best for wildlife and education projects, like LIVE, to make sure the next generation is invested in their environment!
