WELCOME TO THE NGO EDUCATIONAL TRUST

For centuries, gamekeepers, stalkers and river keepers have been the unsung guardians of the British countryside. Nine times as much of the British countryside is looked after by gamekeepers as is in nature reserves and National Parks...but do you know what they do to help sustain our countryside?

Use our new website to find out more about what we do at the NGO Educational Trust and the role of gamekeepers in sustaining the British Countryside. Whether you are a teacher, student, land manager or are simply interested in the countryside you will find a wealth of useful information

The NGO Educational Trust is an independant registered charity established under the parentage of the National Gamekeepers' Organisation, whose primary aim is to educate children and older people into the ways of the countryside and the important part it plays in our lives.
