The Pensthorpe Estate is also the home of the Pensthorpe Conservation Trust (PCT), a charitable trust formed in January 2003 to continue and develop the work of its predecessor, Pensthorpe Waterfowl Trust.
The PCT’s main aims are to establish a centre of excellence, habitat management and restoration alongside conservation of wetland and farmland bird species through captive breeding programmes in national conservation partnerships. The main projects the Trust works on is ‘Actively Saving Species’, which currently focuses on Red Squirrels, Corncrakes, Cranes and Turtle Doves.
Based at Pensthorpe Natural Park in the ecologically important Wensum Valley in North Norfolk the PCT works closely with Pensthorpe to showcase to visitors of the multi-award winning attraction the importance of species and habitat conservation.
