Education & Research

Philip Wayre Upland Trust

The Trust is involved with numerous ongoing projects and monitoring programmes to maintain and improve our understanding of the status of upland species and habitats in our reserves.

Some of these are done in partnership with other organisations and currently include a Partnership Agreement with the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT).

Supporting Young Ecologists

In 2018, we provided an Undergraduate Bursary which helped to support an Ecology student in their final year studies at Newcastle University. While we don’t currently have any beneficiaries, we would always welcome the opportunity to support early-career ecologists and researchers, to help them develop their skills in the field of Upland Ecology.

Any request for financial support would be considered individually on its merit. Please feel free to contact us in the first instance.
