Join Us and Support Our Work

With the help of over 18,000 members and an army of volunteers, Somerset Wildlife Trust has been preserving Somerset’s natural spaces and safeguarding vulnerable wildlife across the county for over 50 years.

Managing 1700 hectares of land and delivering conservation programmes to ensure the next generations are able to enjoy the wildlife-rich landscapes we do today is an enormous undertaking.  We rely heavily on membership to generate the funds we need to do this.  We cannot safeguard precious habitats and vulnerable wildlife in Somerset without the support of those who live and work around them.

Help us Provide Safe Places For Wildlife and Inspiring Spaces for People

We work closely with farmers and landowners across the county to help them manage land effectively for wildlife.  Alongside this we use our nature reserves to create optimised habitats to support the long term safety of some of our most vulnerable wildlife in the face of the increasing impact of climate change. Our reserves are also fantastic places for people to enjoy, explore and connect to nature for health and wellbeing.

Help us Safeguard Vulnerable Species for the next generation to enjoy

Thanks to our supporters we have been able to achieve some  amazing results for wildlife.  But we cannot stop here.  We have to work even harder to maintain these successes in the face of a changing economic climate and to ensure the long term health of other vulnerable species such as dormice, bats, otters and barn owls amongst others.

Protect our precious wildlife and special places for the next generation
