Sadly bumblebee numbers have declined steeply in Britain because changes in agricultural practices have meant there are fewer wild flowers in the landscape, leaving the bumblebees with little to feed upon.  Adopting a bumblebee will help to protect them and the habitats they need to survive in Devon.

Hedgehogs are one of our most familiar and loved British mammals, but their numbers appear to have declined in recent years.  By adopting a hedgehog today you will be supporting our work to try and discover more about the reasons behind this decline.

Dolphins can often be seen off the Devon coast, usually in small groups (pods). Unfortunately each year a small number of dolphins become entangled in discarded and drifting fishing nets. Your dolphin adoption will help our marine conservation and campaigning work which is ensuring a safer future for these magnificent marine mammals.

The dormouse has become extinct in some counties in the UK, but Devon is a stronghold. Many of our nature reserves offer ideal conditions for these animals. DWT regularly monitors dormouse populations and works to create the right habitat for them. Can you help?

Devon remained a haven for otters during the 1960s population crash which was caused by water pollution and habitat loss. Today, threats come from development and unsympathetic management of riversides. Through our work we will help otters return to the whole network of waterways. By adopting an otter today you will help us safeguard their future in Devon.

How you make a real difference

The money raised by your adoption will go towards protecting the habitats of these fascinating animals, directly contributing to their protection and survival.  Devon Wildlife Trust achieves this through its programme of nature conservation work on its nature reserves and by providing education and advice to members of the public, school children and landowners.
