Government funding to help Dorset wildlife


Dorset Wildlife Trust has been awarded government funding for a project to create and revitalise over 500 hectares of habitats including woodlands and ponds across 18 sites in the county. The Species Survival Fund is aimed at helping to halt and reverse the decline in species abundance by preserving vital habitats and creating nature-rich landscapes.  Making Space for Nature project is one of 20 conservation projects across the UK which will each receive a share of the £25 million Species Survival Fund. A wide range of project sites across Dorset include a brand-new nature reserve at Lyscombe, Brownsea Island Lagoon, recently acquired meadow land at Kingcombe National Nature Reserve and near West Holme. The project will restore meadows, wetlands, and orchards and create wood pasture, grasslands, and ponds.
