Keeping Studland special

Studland is special for lots of different reasons, and making sure it stays that way keeps our teams busy all year round.

  • Our outdoor facilities team make sure the beach is a safe, clean and enjoyable place to visit

  • Countryside rangers look after the national nature reserve. They are responsible for conservation in the wider estate and making some of our most inspiring places accessible for everyone

  • Much of what they do is determined by our ecology team, which is doing groundbreaking work to ensure Studland’s special ecology is protected for future generations

  • Our visitor welcome, catering and retails teams are there to ensure everyone gets the most from their trip to Studland 

  • Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do both on the beach, in the countryside and as citizen scientists supporting our conservation work.

Income from car parking, our shop and café helps make all this this possible, but we still need your help.

In 1965 we launched the Neptune Coastline Campaign, and 50 years later it has become our longest running and most successful fundraising campaign. 


Protecting our coastline

Throughout the UK, the National Trust looks after 750 miles of our most beautiful coastline. 

Since the Neptune Coastline Campaign began you’ve helped us raise more than £65 million – mainly through generous gifts, donations and legacies.
