Alderney is the third largest of the Channel Islands at approximately 3.5miles in length by 1.5miles at its widest point. The island totals only 2000 acres. Alderney Wildlife Trust is part of the influential UK-wide partnership of 47 Wildlife Trusts. Working in the absence of British and European wildlife protection laws the Trust is the sole body caring for the island\'s environment. We are a non-profit organisation based on voluntary support which helps to maintain two nature reserves and the island\'s internationally important wetland (Ramsar) site. Our work is helping to secure the future of many important habitats and species, whilst striving to make Alderney a sustainable community for the future.
