The beautiful Ladybird spider was thought to be extinct in Britain for over 70 years until its rediscovery in 1980, at a site supporting only a few of the spiders. Successful conservation management has seen the population grow to nearly 1000 individuals.

With the funds raised we will:

  • establish new populations of the Ladybird spider
  • monitor the existing populations to ensure that they are healthy and sustainable
  • manage the habitat at Ladybird spider sites to allow populations to expand and spread naturally.

We are passionate that this beautiful and rare spider should be conserved and protected for existing and future generations to marvel at, and enjoy. We would love you to be a part of this.

We would also like to give you something back. So, for donations over £20 we will send you a Ladybird spider pin badge and an electronic newsletter updating you on the progress on the project.
