Work For Us|

Help us create more homes for important pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Take a look at the project in our short video below: 



We are trying to raise £5,000  for our Perry Mead Wildlfower Project so we can  deliver a variety of work on two of our  Somerset Wildlife Trust wildflower meadow reserves. Since the 1930s we have lost 97% of our wildflower meadows and this has had a hugely detrimental effect on our  pollinators such as bees and butteflies who depend on these habitats for survival. Bees and butterflies are disappearing at an alarming rate.

It's thanks to pollinators such as bees and butterflies that we get to enjoy a variety of delicious  fruit and vegetables every day such as tomatoes, runner beans and apples.  So next time you sit down and enjoy that bowl of strawberries and cream, or that pint of cider perhaps spare a little thought for the bee or butterfly that have helped make that happen.
