Wild Woodbury looking towards Bere Regis

James Burland

Wild Woodbury Appeal

In 2021, Dorset Wildlife Trust acquired 170 hectares of land near Bere Regis for a large-scale community rewilding project to showcase more sustainable land management, to make more space for nature and to help tackle climate change. We need your help to fund this ambitious project.

Brownsea Lagoon Appeal

Brownsea's Sandwich terns face an uncertain future. Worryingly, their numbers are declining and the global pandemic prevented us from carrying out critical work to protect them from predation, erosion and trampling by sika deer. Donations to this appeal will help restore and increase this high quality nesting habitat.
