Dorset’s wildlife is being showcased with 5 stunning new images taken by Dorset Wildlife Trust volunteers and members. From snowy landscapes of Kimmeridge, to birds sitting among frosted branches, these new Christmas cards from Dorset Wildlife Trust are sure to take your breath away.
Beautiful images of Dorset
Fiona Sampson, Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Supporter Development Manger, said: “It is always difficult to choose images for Christmas cards that represent Dorset, wildlife and Christmas all in one frame at one instant. This year we were spoilt with some amazing images that came from members and friends of Dorset Wildlife Trust, each one kindly donated free of charge. All the images evoke that wonderful frosty morning freshness and winter wonderland feel that we are all hoping for at Christmas. When you send one of these cards the recipient will definitely get that WOW factor.”
Not only will you spread the Christmas cheer among your friends and family, you will also be supporting your local wildlife, as all profits from the cards sold will go directly to help Dorset Wildlife Trust’s conservation work around the county. To top off the feel good factor, the cards are also printed on environmentally friendly card from a Forest Stewardship Council accredited source, with vegetable oil- based ink and printed locally in Dorset.
Eco friendly Christmas wishes
The 5 exclusive images of Dorset include a firecrest singing in snowy branches, a peaceful snow covered scene at Rushy Pond, a beautiful blackbird contrasted against frost- bitten branches and a blue sky, one ice covered moment on the River Stour and an amazing snowy sunset over Kimmeridge Bay.
All Christmas cards are available in packs of ten and are priced at £4.25 including postage and packaging. They are available from the online Dorset Wildlife Trust shop or phone 01305 264620 to place an order.
