How we are funded

As an independent charity, our members and donors make our work for nature possible and provide the majority of the funds we spend looking after wildlife and wild places and bringing people closer to nature in Northern Ireland. We are grateful to every one of you for supporting us. Thank you!

To help us make an even bigger impact, we also receive funding from grants and from corporate partners for specific projects.

We are your local wildlife charity

Around 87p of every £1 is spent on our work looking after wildlife and wild places in Northern Ireland. You can find more information in our Annual Report and Accounts 

Income Expenditure 1718

Thank you!

Every single one of Ulster Wildlife’s supporters is at the heart of what we do - from protecting threatened wildlife like barn owls, red squirrels and bees to saving some of Ulster Wildlife’s last wild places and inspiring the next generation of children to love nature.
