Nottinghamshire Nature Reserves Fund

The Nottinghamshire Nature Reserves Fund needs your help.

Please help us secure a healthy future for our nature reserves.

Our nature reserves are more important than ever before due to the depletion of our meadows, hedgerows and ancient woodland resulting from the many pressures facing our wonderful county. This is not just impacting biodiversity in our precious landscape, it is also leading to a dramatic decline in bioabundance – the sheer volume of smaller species such as insects, so crucial to sustaining life further up the food chain. Each of our nature reserves is a community of species which rely upon each other to thrive.

We need more funds than ever before to meet the challenge of caring for our nature reserves.

Successes such as reversing the fortunes for species like the otter and barn owl pale into insignificance in the face of the challenges which lie ahead. The future of Nottinghamshire’s wildlife is dependent upon the abundance of many smaller creatures, often less visible, species that each play vital roles in sustaining healthy ecosystems. Only by continuing to care for and enhancing our nature reserves with these unsung heroes in mind can we ensure our reserves are the truly species rich habitats that are so important to all of us.

It is often the simple tasks such as regularly cutting back invasive scrub at reserves such as Rainworth Heath in Sherwood Forest or Glebe Field at Attenborough Nature Reserve that allow insects and spiders to expand their populations thus enabling other wildlife to thrive.

The financial cost of maintaining the right balance is high. Our reserve and volunteer teams need the equipment and resources to undertake extensive year-round work programmes across the county.

We need your help to continue this crucial work. Please support our Nature Reserves Fund today!

Sponsor a Nature Reserve

By sponsoring a nature reserve, we will link the support of your business to a local nature reserve of your choice, and highlight your business’s sponsorship to our members and supporters. Corporate Sponsorship of your local nature reserve starts at £2,000

Through this you can show how your business is giving back to the local community, protecting local green spaces for wildlife, and engage staff in health and wellbeing activities through conservation volunteering at a site close to your business
