Dorset Wildlife Trust is the biggest nature conservation charity in Dorset, and has over 25,000 members, which enable the charity to carry out conservation work in Dorset on 40+ nature reserves, and run 5 visitor Centres, from Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour, to Fontmell Down in north Dorset and the Chesil Beach Centre in west Dorset.
Dorset Wildlife Trust is celebrating the success of Get Dorset Buzzing – a campaign asking local people to pledge to do something in their garden to help declining pollinators and other wildlife. Nearly 4,000 people have signed up to the campaign and received their free wildflower seeds and information pack about the importance of supporting insects in gardens. With just a few small (or big!) changes in your garden, such as leaving an area wild or installing a bee hotel, we hope to help turn around the fortunes for declining insects.
DWT Supporter Development Manager, James Haldane said, “Becoming a life member of DWT is ideal for those who are committed to the preservation the natural world in Dorset but aren’t able to spare the time to support us in other ways, such as volunteering. Donations for membership are one of our only reliable sources of income which enables us to continue our conservation work in Dorset. we hope both current members and new members enjoy becoming part of our wildlife support community in Dorset.”
One recent success for wildlife in Dorset after many years of campaigning by DWT and other Wildlife Trusts, is the creation of six new MCZ’s (Marine Conservation Zones) which will allow important features of each site to recover from damaging activities, such as trawling and dredging.
Members of Dorset Wildlife Trust will receive the membership magazine Dorset Wildlife three times a year, including a diary of events for everyone, which includes guided walks, talks, a guide to all 44 Dorset Wildlife Trust nature reserves, which are safe havens for local wildlife; free for you to visit all year round.
