Dudley Mayor’s Charity Appeal raises £11,965.25 to protect local wildlife!

In our Spring 2020 member magazine we interviewed The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor David Stanley about his passion for wildlife and why he had chosen the Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust as one of his two charities.

We are delighted to announce that the Dudley Mayor’s Charity Appeal raised £11,965.25 and our sincere thanks go to everyone who donated. 

Birmingham and the Black Country is home to unique and varied wildlife but it is under threat.  The 2019 State of Nature Report cited that since 1970, 41% of all UK species have decreased, 15% of all UK species, including 41% of insects, are at risk of extinction – leaving our ecosystems and livelihoods in peril.

Fundraising helps us to continue with our valuable urban wildlife conservation and to protect wildlife where you live.
