How nature helps us
Beavering away for nature
At Holnicote in Somerset we've released beavers to improve flood management and create wetland habitats for a host of other species.
Perfect for pollinators
Thanks to gifts in wills, we’ve been able to create an area of meadow the size of 260 football pitches in the White Peak, Derbyshire. This helps pollinators to keep our ecosystem thriving by encouraging new plant life to grow.
Back from the brink
Otters nearly went extinct in the 1950s-1970s, but thanks to increased protection they can now be found across the UK and at many places we care for. As predators, otters help to balance out the ecosystems of our rivers and seas.
Reintroducing the red squirrel
Six red squirrels were brought to Plas Newydd, Wales, in October 2008. Now, thanks to your help, over 100 call it home. Red squirrels are vital to spreading the seeds of coniferous trees, helping reduce carbon emissions.
Counting the seals
In 2018, 2,700 seal pups were born at Blakeney National Nature Reserve, Norfolk, thanks to our rangers' work to ensure their surroundings are safe. Seals are essential to keeping marine ecosystems in check.
Why give to the National Trust?
As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the outdoor spaces in our care. Not only do our supporters help to conserve beautiful landscapes and protect precious plants and wildlife. But they also ensure that future generations have places they can find freedom from everyday life, reconnect with the natural world and make memories to treasure. Your donation will go towards this project and other vital conservation work in the outdoors at this special place. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For everyone, for ever.
