This week is National Marine week for the Wildlife Trusts in the UK. So I thought I’d take this opportunity to talk about a charity I’ve been supporting for some time – The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.
How I became a member.
I joined the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust in 2007 during my college years and have been a member ever since.
I was in our local Homebase (DIY store) when I got chatting to another member. He had a pop up at the store and was encouraging local people to join. I was interested by what he said and how the charity helps local wildlife. Which also includes a nature reserve near my parents home which I was very pleased to hear.
The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust in The Cotswolds
The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust works throughout the county to provide wildlife knowledge and expertise, from ecological consultancy to wildlife advice.
I live in a beautiful part of the country, the Cotswolds and think it’s important to keep it looking as lovely and vibrant as it currently is.
Activities and Events
National Marine Week is The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trusts nationwide celebration of all things marine. During this time, Wildlife Trusts all around the UK put on a wide range of events and activities, including inland. I’m hoping to go to a few of their events over the Summer… Dolphin watching in Yorkshire anyone?
What charities do you support? Are you a member of your local wildlife trust?
