Protect the wildlife and wild places you love

Somerset is a county blessed with a variety of stunning landscapes home to an enormous variety of wildlife.  But our wildlife is in decline and we are losing our wild places and the green corridors that connect them.

We are working to reverse this decline and put nature back into recovery but we cannot do it alone.  We can do much more with the support of those who live and work around in the county.

Help us create a county rich in wildlife from just £3 a month - we can't do it without people like you!

The Wildlife Trusts play a very important part in protecting our natural heritage. I would encourage anyone who cares about wildlife to join them.
Sir David Attenborough, President Emiritus
