How your donation helps CRT

We need donations to continue our vital and pioneering work creating a living, working countryside that supports humans and nature.

Some of our key practices include:

Sustainable farming - We provide support, resources and volunteers to our tenant farmers allowing them to sustainable farming methods and create pockets of biodiversity.

For example, volunteers on all the properties have planted hedgerows, resulting in wildlife corridors and increased biodiversity. 

Monitoring our success - The latest State of Nature report estimate that 15% are at threat of extinction in the UK. Our wonderful team of Wildlife Monitors and volunteers provide data that we evaluate and disseminate.

For example, on Lark Rise Farm, the number of Yellowhammers in 25 times higher now than they were 20 years ago. 

Natural heritage restoration - Native species and rare breeds are vitally important to CRT. We focus on saving some critically endangered species via breeding programmes and recovery initiatives.

Our sites are havens for nature and wildlife creating healthy and safe environments for them to flourish. Most notably at Awnells Farm in Herefordshire we had the rare orchard tooth fungus fruit, which has previously been recorded at only 14 sites across Britain. Also, the rare Coprinellus heptemerus was recorded at Bere Marsh Farm, Dorset, this tiny fungus has only every been recorded 13 times in the UK.

With your help we can continue this vital work and give a home to a variety of species.
