It may come as a surprise for some to know that despite being cared for by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust for almost six decades, Attenborough Nature Reserve still belongs to aggregates company CEMEX UK.
Following intensive negotiations with the company NWT have secured an opportunity to buy the reserve. So, with the backing of the general public, funders and our corporate members to name but a few, we need to raise £1 million to safeguard its future for people and wildlife. As at the start of December some £60,000 has been donated and NWT has a grant application to the Landfill Communities Fund for £750,000 and expect to hear about this shortly.
This is why NWT have launched the Attenborough Nature Reserve Lifeline Appeal, backed by none other than Sir David Attenborough himself. Follow this link for more information and how to donate – https://www.nottinghamshirewildlife.org/lifelineappeal
