Coronavirus update

Statement by London Wildlife Trust
Revised 24th March 2020

The health and well-being of the public, our volunteers and our staff are of the utmost importance to us.

In light of recent developments around the Covid-19 virus, we are evaluating our services and closely following advice and guidelines given by the government.


All our cafes, visitor centres and other buildings are closed until further notice. We intend to keep our nature reserve spaces open as long as we can do so without risking the health of our staff and visitors.  We urge all visitors to follow government instructions with regard to social distancing so that we can keep open as long as possible. We are reviewing our policy daily and we may need to shut our sites at short notice. 

Please check our website for updates.


All events and planned activities are cancelled. We are monitoring public health information and will continue to post updates on our website and social media channels.


All volunteering activities, including corporate workdays, have been paused. This will take immediate effect as of Wednesday 18th March.

If you need to get in touch, please email in the first instance. At this busy time we may take longer to reply to your enquiries, so your patience is appreciated.

London Wildlife Trust would not be able to carry out the important work we do for people and nature without our supporters and we thank you all for your continued support during these difficult times. We encourage you to stay in touch via our social media channels Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Support us

As is the case for most charities, we expect the continuing situation to have a significant impact on our finances. We also understand that during this turbulent period, many of you will be unable to make a donation.

If you are able to spare any amount, however large or small, to help London Wildlife Trust continue to work hard for wildlife it would be so appreciated. In advance, thank you, from all of us, and on behalf of London's wildlife.
