Corporate support forms an important part of funding required to continue wildlife conservation activities undertaken by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, forming 8% of the Trust’s overall financial budget in 2018-19. These funds support a cross-sectional range of vital wildlife conservation activities across the county, from habitat management schemes such as recent collaborative restoration work to potentially secure Gresham Marsh (thought to be a haven for the nationally scarce woodcock) with statutory designation as a new Local Nature Reserve, to engaging young people with wildlife conservation through schemes such as the ‘Keeping It Wild’ youth group and the ‘Young Rangers’ scheme.

So whether you prefer to relax in a hammock in the Cotswolds, take a brisk hike up the Black Mountains, or enjoy a refreshing dip in the ocean in Cornwall, by choosing to book with holidaycottages.co.uk you will be not only benefiting from a relaxing escape to the wilds of the UK, but also supporting a wilder future.
