Help save Dorset's wildlife
Dorset Wildlife Trust has launched an appeal to help wildlife at risk in the county.
Conservation work is under threat in the current economic climate, according to Dorset’s largest nature conservation organisation, which is now calling for public help for woodlands, bumblebees and the birds of Brownsea Island’s lagoon.
Simon Cripps, Chief Executive of Dorset Wildlife Trust, said: “As difficult economic times continue, it is getting much harder to fund vital nature conservation work and wildlife is now at risk. We urgently need to raise £42,000 in total for these three important wildlife projects. The funds will not only enable us to commence work but could also provide other match funding for grants, whereby donations can be multiplied to secure a much greater sum. People can choose which one to support and we promise that the money will be strictly spent on their chosen project.”
