Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust

Champions Of Sherwood

Target: £100,000

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's vision for a Living Landscape in Sherwood which will be delivered by restoring, recreating and reconnecting wildlife-rich spaces. Alongside efforts to protect the valuable remaining areas of woodland, wood pasture and heathland, the Wildlife Trust is working with partners to put back areas of the Forest lost to development, intensive agriculture or other changes in land use.

Dormice Hedge Fund

Target: £5000

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has been actively supporting the re-introduction of dormice in Nottinghamshire. We care for a number of release sites & are working to link sites to ensure the species' future.

Badger Appeal

Target: £75,000

We are committed to reducing bovine TB in badgers and cattle here in Nottinghamshire, encouraging a healthy, stable badger population. We can make a real difference, but only with your support.

 Cornwall Wildlife Trust

Bring Beavers Back to Cornwall

Target: £20,000 

We want to bring beavers back to Cornwall for the first time in 400 years to help reduce flooding and benefit wildlife. 

After being hunted to extinction in the UK 400 years ago, this ground-breaking project hopes to show that beavers can help create new wildlife habitat, make our water cleaner and crucially reduce flooding. Beavers will be reintroduced to a fenced area, upstream of Ladock village, near Truro, that has suffered severe flooding.

Now we have the chance to secure a second piece of land that will help us transform the future of this site.

Pine Marten Appeal

 
 

Target: £10,000

 
 

Pine martens have been discovered in Shropshire – the only confirmed location in England!

 
 
 
 
 
 

Your donation will help us conserve the existing population of these wonderful animals, and install 100 den boxes to promote safe breeding spaces. Our team will also be working hard, analysing their DNA by collecting scats (poo) to check their origin, and raising awareness of their presence with local landowners.

 
 

Sheffield

Be a Hedgehog Hero!

Target: £5,000

Please help our campaign to raise £5000 to save Sheffield's hedgehogs!

Your donation will fund hedgehog-friendly habitat work on our nature reserves, and support our Nature Counts volunteers' work to survey and monitor hedgehog numbers. We're also committed to combating the causes of their decline, and raising awareness of the hedgehogs' plight.


Northumberland

Give our volunteers a home?

Target: £5,000

The workshop will be created from a second-hand storage container and will be insulated and fitted with electricity and mains water creating a warm, dry working space.

All too often, volunteers end up working in cramped, cold conditions in our existing small storage area or even worse, outside in the cold and rain.

This new, dedicated area will be perfect for all kinds of activities like making bird boxes to go out on our reserves or simply repairing tools.

Somerset

Somerset Nature Reserve Fund

We manage over 1700 hectares of land which includes a variety of habitats, providing secure environments for a diverse range of species.

It takes an awful lot of planning and resource throughout the year to sustain the basic health of these special places.

We need your support; a contribution no matter how big or small will really make a difference.

 
 
 
 

North Wales

Minera Appeal

Target: £25,000

Minera Quarry is a special place, but not yet a Wildlife Trust nature reserve – and we need you to help us protect it for the future.

At the moment, Minera Quarry is barely accessible and unmanaged for people and wildlife. Without your help, many of the unique grassland flowers will be engulfed by thick scrub and lost forever.


Surrey

Treasure Chest Appeal

In 2014, an incredible number of people supported our Treasure Chest Appeal. However, we’ve been so successful in our funding applications that our Treasure Chest is now empty!

Treasure Chest donations offer us a unique opportunity because for every £1 you give we can unlock up to a further £9 from Surrey companies.

Treasure Chest donations could help us bring otters back to Surrey, one of the last counties in England without a resident wild otter population.

We have so much that we want to do and it's only with your continued support that we're able to access this unique source of funding!

Suffolk

Suffolk Broads Appeal

Target: £1 million

Suffolk Wildlife Trust has an amazing, unprecedented opportunity to create a 1,000 acre nature reserve in the Broads National Park, right on the doorstep of Lowestoft.

We need to raise £1 million to purchase 384 acres of land flanking our existing reserve at Carlton Marshes. Buying this land will secure its future as a home for wildlife forever.

Wiltshire

Coombe Bissett Land Purchase Appeal

Target: £185,000

Purchasing this space will give us a significant opportunity to build on our success in restoring chalk downland at our existing Coombe Bissett Down nature reserve.

With your support, we can double the size of the existing nature reserve, reconnect two parts of the Homington and Coombe Bissett Downs SSSI and link the Coombe Bissett Down County Wildlife Site. The new reserve will cover an area of 215 acres, provide ecological connectivity and further protect, maintain and enhance this internationally important habitat.


Our Marvellous Meadows

Target: £17,500

We need your help to buy a new vehicle capable of towing 3.5 tonnes to manage these amazing wildlife rich meadows.

This vehicle is essential to help manage our Conservation Herd and in turn to manage our 680 hectares of grassland nature reserves, including some of the best chalk downland in England.

Gloucestershire

Nature reserves fund

Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is uniquely placed to protect and secure the county's rich and varied landscapes, vulnerable wildlife and iconic species.

With your support the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust team will make sure that our nature reserves continue to excite and inspire people today and for generations to come.

Our nature reserves may appear to be wild, undisturbed havens for wildlife, but a great deal of hard work, time and investment goes into keeping them 'wild'. The on-going cyclical nature of reserve management is vital to produce the diversity of habitats for rare species to survive.

Rarities of Gloucestershire

Extinction isn’t just threatening flora and fauna overseas. Right here in Gloucestershire, there are precious and beautiful species that could vanish forever. We have some of the country’s rarest and most fragile wildflowers on our doorstep. But they are in rapid decline. Many are now only found on nature reserves managed by Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.

That's why we urgently need your help today.

Hampshire and Isle of Wight

Secrets of the Solent

Target: £10,000

The Solent and waters around the Isle of Wight are home to a whole host of animals, from seals and elusive seahorses, to feisty crabs, strange-looking sea squirts and intelligent cuttlefish.

Help us get an important project off the ground that aims to protect these fabulous species and their environment.
