Wiltshire Wildlife Trust is working to create living landscapes across Wiltshire by restoring, reconnecting and recreating wildlife habitats across landscapes for wildlife and people. Within the county there are eleven different types of landscape, each with their own distinct characteristics. From the chalky grasslands in the south to Braydon Forest in the north, Wiltshire is home to some rare and beautiful flora and fauna.
16 of the Trust's reserves are in their entirety, or contain, Sites of Special Scientific Interest:
- Clattinger Farm, in the north of the county, is renowned for its wild snakeshead fritillary population
- Blackmoor Copse, near Salisbury, the Trust's very first reserve, is one of the most important woods in Wiltshire for butterflies
- Wiltshire's county flower, the burnt orchid, can be found growing at the Coombe Bissett Down nature reserve just outside Salisbury
- Langford Lakes, near Wilton, is a rare body of open water in the south of the county and is a perfect spot for those that enjoy bird watching
