Who we are

The Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) has a mission to restore nature across these beautiful counties and empower people to connect with their local wildlife. Our vision is to see ‘more nature everywhere’.

Our expert team work with more than 1,700 volunteers to look after 85 nature reserves and four education centres, run hundreds of amazing events, and campaign to make nature’s recovery a reality.

BBOWT is seeking to recruit a small number of new trustees to join our Board at the 2021 AGM. All candidates need a commitment to BBOWT’s work, values and future strategy.

We are looking for trustees with one or more of the following areas of expertise

• Campaigning and Advocacy, including influencing local and national government policy 

• Senior local government experience eg in planning or policy 

• Digital / IT 

• Agriculture / land management

A new Chair is also being sought as our current Chair is moving away from the BBOWT area. The Chair needs to have leadership and chairing skills and experience of running an organisation.

BBOWT is keen to increase the ethnic diversity of our Board.
