Despite its size and isolation Alderney is exposed to all of the same pressures on its natural environment as are found in the rest of the British Isles. The Alderney Wildlife Trust is the only organisation, including the island's government, which can respond to these threats and we need your help.

Working within an island community the Alderney Wildlife Trust (AWT) takes great care when considering on what issues it should campaign.  It is all to easy to alienate a community when trying to engage it with subjects which appear to removed from its day-to-day life.

However, it is crucial for all Trusts to campaign for the protection of their local environment as well as to support national campaigns to protect Britain's Wildlife.

So when you consider the issues raised in the campaigns on this page please understand how important they are to our wildlife.
