Wildlife at Sherborne
As a conservation charity, we’ve set some ambitious plans to help wildlife thrive. The Sherborne Park Estate has lots of different habitats across 4,138 acres – and over the next few years we have a lot of work to do to make it an even better place for wildlife. Looking after this estate forever, for everyone, is something we couldn’t do without our farm tenants, our members and supporters. And we’d like your help too.
" The mix of grassland, parkland, arable land, woodland and watercourses at Sherborne provides habitats for an abundance of invertebrates, small mammals and aquatic life. These, in turn support predators from otters to red kites, barn owls to stoats and flocks of farmland birds. "

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. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For ever, for everyone.
