The Wildlife Trusts

Opticron works closely with many regional Trusts to promote our joint interest in wildlife observation and conservation. This support includes:

  • running optics field days on reserves generating funds through sales
  • sponsorship of events and competitions
  • running guided walks and education programmes
  • supporting special projects and education services
  • supplying equipment for volunteers to carry out conservation work

Through our relationship with the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Peterborough we established a licensing agreement to be the exclusive supplier of Wildlife Trust branded optics. The Wildlife Trust branded range is sold by a number of the Trusts and through our dealer network. A percentage of all sales is donated to the Trust.

Other Trusts we are working with or have provided support to in recent years include those responsible for Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, Cheshire, Cornwall, Dorset, Essex, Hertfordshire and Middlesex, Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside, Leicestershire and Rutland, Lincolnshire, London, North Wales, Northumberland, Nottinghamshire, Scotland, the South and West Wales, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Yorkshire.
