Westhay Heath Jigsaw Appeal - we did it!

Back in May we set ourselves the challenge of raising £55,000 in just six weeks in order to purchase the last crucial piece of land in a jigsaw of important wildlife habitat in the Avalon Marshes.

Thanks to your generous support, we met our target!

Over 700 donations were received for Jigsaw Appeal, and these, combined with a generous legacy left to the Trust with specific instructions for it to be used in the Westhay area, mean that we now have the funds to proceed with purchasing the land.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated or supported the appeal in some way - your generosity is overwhelming.

We hope to complete the purchase of the 12 acre site in the next couple of months. The land adjoins our Westhay Heath Nature Reserve in the Avalon Marshes, a vital area for migratory and resident water birds. This last piece in the jigsaw will provide a vital extension to the area of reed bed and pools of open water upon which bittern, bearded tit, kingfisher, otter and marsh harrier depend.

Thanks to the success of the appeal, we will now be able to create a larger, more resilient expanse of wetland habitat that enables wildlife to move across the landscape and provides greater protection against localised extinction.

Thank you so much for your support

As landscapes become increasingly fragmented it's opportunities like this that cannot be missed, to not only develop a connected living landscape but to secure the survival of many species from localized extinction.
