Give A Hog A Home - £25.00
When did you last see a hedgehog? Like other wildlife, hedgehogs are in decline through loss of suitable habitat. Want to know more about how to help our humble hedgehog? This pack gives you all the information you need to encourage our prickly friends back in to your neighbourhood plus a great hedgehog soft toy.
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.
Dormouse - £25.00
The dormouse disappeared from our woodlands for nearly 100 years. But in 1996, Cheshire Wildlife Trust launched the Cheshire Dormouse reintroduction project, to bring our dormice back! The UK’s hazel dormouse is a small nocturnal rodent, only 14cm long from the end of its nose to the tip of its tail. It spends up to ¾ of its life asleep!
