Conservation Partnerships: Pensthorpe Conservation Trust
Pensthorpe Conservation Trust (PCT) is 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.
Based at Pensthorpe Natural Park in the ecologically important Wensum Valley in North Norfolk, the PCT works closely with Pensthorpe to showcase to visitors the importance of species and habitat conservation.
