Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust has reached a critical point in the care of some of its most important nature reserves so we have created The Gloucestershire Nature Reserves Fund to provide vital funds for our most urgent projects.

Please help us accelerate positive changes for wildlife in Gloucestershire and enable us to take action now to help important habitats to achieve long-term resilience in the face of our changing climate and other external pressures, which can have devastating impacts on our most vulnerable wildlife. 

Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is uniquely placed to lead and deliver land management programmes to protect and secure the county's rich and varied landscapes, vulnerable wildlife and iconic species.

With your support the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust team will make sure that our nature reserves continue to excite and inspire people today and for generations to come.

Our nature reserves may appear to be wild, undisturbed havens for wildlife, but a great deal of hard work, time and investment goes into keeping them 'wild'. The on-going cyclical nature of reserve management is vital to produce the diversity of habitats for rare species to survive.

We simply don't have the funds at present to restore priority habitats as quickly as we need to, or on a large enough scale which would allow far greater movement of wildlife within and between our sites.
