Nature Connections Match Fund Appeal

The festive season is full of nature: trees, holly, ivy... but our precious natural world is in crisis. The recent State of Nature report showed that 15% of the 9670 species studied are at risk of extinction from the UK. Hedgehogs, dormice and bumblebees. Creatures that epitomise British wildlife. But now, when we need to take action to protect our wildlife, our society is suffering from a disastrous disconnection from nature. Less than 50% of our children regularly play in wild places. Our screen-based, modern lifestyles keep us indoors. Anxiety and depression affects one in every four of us.Avon Wildlife Trust has ten years' experience of reconnecting people to nature on their doorstep - and supporting them to protect it. As a result of regular access and meaningful connection to the outdoors, we support thousands of people to improve their mental health and wellbeing, and transform local wild places to create havens for wildlife.But we need to do so much more to ensure a healthy future for people and wildlife. We urgently need your help to reconnect people with nature - and inspire them to take action to protect if for the future.

Every gift made up to a total of £5000 will be doubled by our match fund. All gifts made above £5000 will not be doubled but they WILL STILL help Avon Wildlife Trust to continue its vital work connecting people to the nature on their doorstep, and inspire them to take action to protect the future for wildlife.

Please help us inspire more people to champion nature where they find it: in parks; gardens; high streets; and our nature reserves.

Thank you so much for your generous support.

Many thanks to Folly Farm for allowing the Rok the Stones Trail Marathon to cross the estate. We had some great feedback from the runners.

The impressive work done in Prior's Wood to remove rhodedendron and restore the oak woodland habitat makes me very optimistic that some things do get better! Looking forward to seeing what happens there this spring.
