Donate towards this

Following the devastating fire on Saturday 23rd April on Canford Heath Nature Reserve which destroyed over 16.7 hectres of land (the equivalent of 23 international football pitches) we are fundraising to support the reserve.

Funds raised will be used to:

  • Replace fencing
  • Undertake surveys to understand the species populations and distributions to help us better quantify loses
  • Assist with future management options, such as blocking ditches to rewet mires and create new sand patches to benefit reptiles and invertebrates
  • Erect better signage explaining why the reserve is so important for nature and wildlife
  • Fund volunteer supplies, many of whom have supported us during this catastrophic event.

If you are able to support this much loved nature reserve, we’d really appreciate your donations.

This fundraising page has been set up in collaboration with BCP Council who manage Canford Heath Nature Reserve.
