Go wild! Discover nature in your community with The Southern Co-operative and Dorset Wildlife Trust

Whether you live in the heart of a city or down a country lane – there’s always new wildlife experiences waiting to be discovered right on your doorstep

Spending time in green spaces makes us happier and healthier - and best of all is good fun. With the help of The Southern Co-operative, Dorset Wildlife Trust is helping families get outside in nature and explore our wild neighbourhoods.

Join Wildlife Watch

With 28,000 members nationwide, why not consider joining the biggest and best junior environmental club around? Wildlife Watch is our regular monthly wildlife club for 5-12 year olds and allows children to discover nature hands on. Find out more here.

Have a truly wild adventure

For a really wild experience, visit one of your local wildlife havens. Dorset Wildlife Reserves are home to some truly incredible creatures, including dormice and orchids. Dorset is also lucky enough to have heathland habitat to support all six species of reptile native to the UK. For more information about all 45 of our reserves, click here.

Demonstrate your photographic prowess

Why not enter our Pat Dolbear Photographic Award for Young People? Get up close and personal and capture your favourite wildlife – you might win even win some Amazon vouchers for your efforts. 

Take part in our Wildlife Events

Getting outdoors is often both a free and easy way to keep the kids entertained. Dorset Wildlife Trust offers regular wildlife events including rockpooling, beachcombing and eco-crabbing which you can get involved with this summer. Look out for our Wildlife Events Guide, appearing in your local Southern Co-operative store soon.
