Joining our corporate community
Joining Dorset Wildlife Trust as a Corporate Member is not only a fantastic way to support local wildlife, but great for your business too! Inspire and engage your staff, customers and stakeholders by showing your company is committed to helping local wildlife, protecting the environment and fighting for nature's recovery in your local area.
Of course, the biggest benefit of corporate membership is to support the work of Dorset Wildlife Trust in protecting Dorset’s wildlife and wild places but there are lots more reasons to join us.

Access to conservation advice
Joining as a Wildlife Partner gives you the option to choose between a day's worth of our expert conservation team's time to help you fulfil your corporate social responsibility policy for local projects, key to Dorset’s conservation and communities. Or a Corporate Volunteer Team Day as outlined below. We can also provide expert conservation advice for mitigation for development planning and for management of your own grounds or land
Corporate Volunteering Day
As a Wildlife Partner, you are entitled to either a day's worth of expert conservation advice, or an annual Corporate Volunteer Team Day. Taking everyone out of the workplace for the day to work together on one of our stunning nature reserves offers the perfect way to bring your staff together to build the team and their sense of wellbeing and achievement. Each day is bespoke so you can choose the reserve, the date and the tasks to suit your staff – we’ll provide all the equipment, expert leadership and supervision and make sure that the team have a great day out!
Companies across Dorset are enjoying the benefits of corporate membership – we offer a choice of two packages to suit your needs, as well as a range of sponsorship options.
Corporate membership of Dorset Wildlife Trust enables local businesses and their staff to play an active role in securing a healthy natural environment for everyone.Chief Executive, Dorset Wildlife Trust
