This year you can buy unique and fun gifts from the Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT) online shop, and also help local wildlife, as 100% of the profits made go towards conservation work in Dorset.
Wildlife-themed gifts for all ages and tastes
The DWT online shop, which was launched last year, has lots of new products added for the festive time of year, with wildlife-themed gifts for all ages and tastes. From the best-selling Pterodactyl Jurassic Kite, lip balm gift sets from Filberts of Dorset, the new ‘My Wild Life’ journal for young people, to locally handmade jewellery and the Gruffalo Nature Trail book for kids, there is something for everyone.
Christmas cards starting from £4 for 10 cards
This year’s Christmas cards include illustrations by local artist Sam Dodd, of a hare and fox in snow, starting from £4 for 10 cards. Other designs include iconic wildlife scenes such as the Kingfisher, Red Kite and Fallow Deer. The DWT 2016 calendar shares the wildlife moments from local wildlife photographer Stewart Canham, including images of red squirrels, tawny owls and dolphins in their natural habitat.
100% of the profits go directly back into wildlife conservation work in Dorset
DWT’s Individual Giving Manager, Fiona Sansom said, “The new products in the DWT online shop for 2015 have been chosen with all tastes in mind, but with a wildlife theme. We are also pleased to say that in buying gifts from the DWT online shop, 100% of the profits go directly back into wildlife conservation work in Dorset, so this is a great gift for wildlife as well as your loved ones.”
Adopt a red squirrel for just £20
Another great gift for both people and wildlife, is adopting a red squirrel, for just £20. This one year adoption will help us continue the conservation work on Brownsea Island to ensure the red squirrels have the correct conditions to thrive. The adoption pack includes a certificate, red squirrel photograph, fact sheet, an update from the Brownsea Warden and a red squirrel soft toy.
