The Ladybird spider an example of work to save species in the UK

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 threatened speciesr
  • monitor the existing populations to ensure that they are healthy and sustainable
  • manage the habitat at sites to allow populations to expand and spread naturally.

We are passionate that these beautiful and rare species 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.
