meadows pic6th July - Some of our best-loved wild flowers including wild strawberry, ragged robin and harebell are declining markedly as a result of the devastation of grasslands including our wildflower meadows - 97% of which have been eradicated since the 1930s, says Plantlife, Europe's largest charity dedicated to wildflowers and other flora.

21st February - Somerset Wildlife Trust is pleased to launch a new phase of its work in East Mendip.  Building on the success of the work carried out over the last few years, Mendip Wildlife Links aims to connect communities, farmers and other landowners in the area to the wonderful habitats and wildlife found there, and inspire them to work together to secure a long term future for the county’s species.  The project will include an extensive event programme, offering all age groups the opportunity to participate in nature based activities whether practical volunteering, a health and wellbeing activity or a creative skills workshop.
