Adopt a Species is back!

Please adopt a species and help save today’s wildlife for tomorrow.

Why not give this unique present for Christmas, a birthday, or even in memory of a loved one?

We need to raise vital funds to continue our important conservation work in Essex. Every £20 you donate will enable us to continue protecting these special species. The recipient will receive a gift certificate, a lovely pin-badge and you will both be invited to a special event led by an Essex Wildlife Trust expert!

At Blue House Farm, Barn Owls are thriving due to the installation of nest boxes, while the grazing marsh is managed perfectly for the thousands of Brent Geese that arrive every autumn. From a gravel pit to one of the finest nature reserves in the country, Fingringhoe Wick has been transformed into an oasis, with woodland, grasslands, ponds and saltmarsh supporting increasing numbers of Water Voles and a thriving family of Badgers. Abbotts Hall Farm is a prime example of how farming can be sustainable and sympathetic to wildlife, as Brown Hares and Hedgehogs can be found throughout the site.

Sadly, there is always more to be done, but with your help we can build on this great work.

As part of your adoption, you will experience these fantastic species first-hand, learn more about them, ask questions, and enjoy a present with a difference.
