Adopt a Dormouse for £20


More details

Dormice are one of the UK’s rarest and most secretive mammals but our nature reserves provide a safe place for these sleepy little creatures.

Each adoption gift includes an information sheet and glossy photo of a dormouse, along with your choice of greetings card. We can even send it direct to your recipient if you prefer.

Help us protect these vulnerable animals through the traditional management of local woodlands, hazel coppicing, and by putting up dormouse boxes for nesting and surveys.

Your gift will help us protect vulnerable wildlife and preserve wild places in Somerset.

I wish Somerset Wildlife Trust (Charity No. 238372) to reclaim tax on all subscriptions and donations I have made in the last four years, and all I make hereafter*. I confirm that I pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax (excluding other taxes such as Council Tax and VAT) at least equal to the tax that will be reclaimed by charities (and Community Amateur Sports Clubs) on all of my donations and subscriptions in the tax year.

* Please remember to notify us if you become a non-taxpayer in the future.
