We're crowdfunding a book of poems to highlight our vulnerable species and raise vital funds for The Wildlife Trusts. We need to act fast

 New stretch target

As well as covering costs for producing the book we want to help raise vital funds for The Wildlife Trusts. 

The problem

Wildlife is under threat. Animals that we think of as part of our lives are disappearing, with shocking rates of decline: beavers, puffins, dormice, hedgehogs, nightingales, toads, bees, butterflies.

Our approach

Partnering with The Wildlife Trusts the writer's group 26 wants to draw attention to the plight of these threatened species. More than 50 writers have written about animals at risk of extinction. Many of the threats are created by human activity, so we can do something. First, raise awareness of the issue through this book of poems that are moving, lyrical, angry, funny and diverse. Second, campaign for action to help the animals recover.

We need you

There's still time. Please support the book to bring about change. Once we've raised the production costs of the book, we will use the surplus money to continue the campaign and help The Wildlife Trusts to do their vital work in every part of the country.
