Support the Stepping Stones Appeal
Areas of heathland, flower-rich grassland and wetland were once extensive across the Shropshire hills, providing homes for wildlife including the dormouse, curlew, mountain pansy and small pearl bordered fritillary butterfly. All of these species have declined over the past 20 years, partly because their habitats have been cut off and isolated. Help us to create stepping stones and corridors between these remaining habitats to give plants and animals the chance to thrive in this special landscape.
How the appeal adds up
- The project area covers 220km² of the Shropshire Hills
- The curlew has declined 77% in the last 20 years here in Shropshire
- We're creating corridors of habitats by connecting 2 major nature reserves - Long Mynd and the Stiperstones
- Stepping Stones is a 50 year vision for a Shropshire landscape rich in wildlife
