Will you help the Trust's Reserves Team protect your local wildlife?

Please help us raise £24,000 to fund the essential equipment our Reserves Team needs to manage your local nature reserves

From beautiful ancient woodlands, meadows and wetlands to rare patches of heath and orchard, your local nature reserves are some of the best places in the area for wildlife. As you might expect, many people visit our reserves eager to see a much-loved animal, to hear the first birdsong of the spring or to simply get away from the hullabaloo and enjoy some fresh air in the great outdoors. However, all the things that make exploring our nature reserves such a rich experience would not be possible without the time, investment and expertise of our wonderful Reserves Team, and they need your help.

Our nature reserves may appear to be self-managing, however, like the majority of ‘wild’ places in Britain, they are actually semi-natural habitats which require long-term, cyclical reserve management to restore and maintain their diversity. This is vital for our rare species to survive.

As the autumn weather sets in, our expert Reserves Team and volunteers are already busy managing your local wildlife habitats, including scrub and ditch clearance, coppicing, grassland cutting, caring for livestock and species monitoring – and that’s just for starters! This important conservation work is crucial, but it puts great pressure on their vehicles and equipment which regularly need to be serviced, repaired, and sometimes replaced.

It will cost the Trust over £24,000 to equip our Reserves Team with the tools needed to continue to protect and improve vital habitats for the wildlife in your local area. You can help us achieve this.

A donation from you today, no matter how small, will help to ensure your local nature reserves continue to be rich in wildlife; exciting and inspiring people for generations to come.
