beaver

Beaver - Nick Upton/Cornwall Wildlife Trust

Beaver - £30.00

After having been hunted to extinction for their fur, meat and glands, this is the first time this incredible animal will have been in our county for over 400 years.

As part of a five-year project, Cheshire Wildlife Trust are releasing two beavers into a 10-acre enclosure within Delamere. The aim is for the beavers to use natural processes such as tree coppicing and dam building to slow the flow of water into a nearby mere that is currently suffering from poor water quality issues.

You can be part of bringing beavers back to Cheshire by adopting a beaver today.

The beaver adoption pack comes with the gift of a key ring and either a cuddly toy or a book.

Otter - £25.00

It was only in 2011 that the otter was once again reported as back in every county in Britain, an amazing recovery that is now underway after years of battling against polluted waterways. Here in Cheshire, our conservation of rivers and wetlands within our Living Landscape schemes are benefiting otters. Infra-red cameras are now monitoring otters on our nature reserves too. Help us to continue our work on river habitats in Cheshire.

Barn Owl - £25.00

Recent reports have shown that 2013 was one of the worst years on record for nesting barn owls across the UK, with numbers in Cheshire alone dropping by more than 80% on the previous year due to poor winter and spring weather conditions. With your help, we can work with our partners to install nesting boxes for barn owls and manage hedgerows and suitable habitats for this iconic bird.
