The Alderney Wildlife Trust aims to promote the conservation and protection of Alderney's terrestrial and marine wildlife and associated habitats, also to promote the conservation and protection of places of scientific interest, amenity value or natural beauty.
The Trust seeks to educate the public about the importance of sustainable development, biodiversity conservation and Alderney's wildlife, and to promote research in all branches of nature study.
The Alderney Wildlife Trust was launched in May 2002, in response to concerns about the lack of land management in Alderney and to combat the ensuing loss of habitat and took over from the existing Alderney Conservation Volunteers organisation.
The Trust's inherited the Longis Bird Hide, which attracted over 3000 visitors in its first year of operation alone. It continues to be very popular with residents and visitors alike, with many returning time and again to enjoy the simple pleasures of watching the bird life on Longis pond.
