Dorset's Barn Owls need your help!
Raised So Far: £1165.00
Why we need your help:
In 2016 we were devastated that no barn owl pairs took up residence in the barn owl box at Lorton Meadows nature reserve; echoing the concern nationally of falling barn owl populations.
A survey in the 1990s found there were only 4,000 pairs of these beautiful birds left in the UK - where once there were an estimated 12,000. Loss of habitat, low prey availability and a lack of suitable roosting sites have all contributed to the plight of the barn owl.
Don't let the barn owl become a thing of the past!
At Dorset Wildlife Trust we are working hard to manage and restore these rich habitats at our Lorton Meadows nature reserve. This is where we need your help; we urgently need to raise £20,000 to continue our vital work on barn owl habitats. With your help today; we will be working on improving feeding and breeding opportunities, by creating and restoring, the right habitat for our much-loved and threatened barn owls to thrive.
Over the next year we are planning to:
