Northern Ireland’s largest conservation charity, the National Trust is playing an active part in the global fight against climate change. Wildlife, beaches, woodlands, archaeological sites, historic buildings, gardens and parklands are all under threat.
The Trust is tackling the causes of climate change by reducing emissions, caring for the land that captures and stores carbon, nurturing wildlife habitats and putting pressure on the Government to adopt policies that will help us all look after the places you love to visit.
