Experience local wildlife and wild places

Thanks to the support of over 13,000 passionate members we care for 18 special places across Northern Ireland, home to many species of plants and animals under threat in the wider countryside. 

From ancient woodland to flower-filled meadows, wonderful wetlands to inner-city sanctuaries,  our nature reserves bring you close to nature in amazing settings. Whether you're in pursuit of awe-inspiring seasonal wildlife experiences,  an exhilarating walk, great views or a sense of the wild, we can help you find it. 

And if you love our seas, as much as we do, take a dip into our interactive map to discover the amazing sea life around our coast.
