Conservation Partnerships: Dorset Wildlife Trust
Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT) is the largest conservation charity in Dorset with over 25,000 members. The trust is committed to ensuring that there is a secure future for Dorset’s nature - its distinctive wildlife, natural spaces and landscapes. The trust uses a sound evidence base, influence and wide practical experience of land management and marine conservation to inspire, inform and engage people in Dorset.
Dorset Wildlife Trust was a very early supporter of Wild Days Conservation, indeed our first-ever holidays were run in partnership with it. Since then our partnership has developed and we now work together on multiple sites under its ownership or management. Our contribution to the trust's work is complemented by its expert input into associated learning opportunities.
Wild Days Conservation holidays in West Dorset further support the work of the trust by using DWT's Kingcombe Centre and associated holiday properties for accommodation and as a base for our research work in the area.
