Fundraising Appeal To Save Ancient Woodland Near Canterbury

Kent Wildlife Trust has launched a fundraising appeal to save an ancient 64 acre woodland in the Eltham Valley near Canterbury.

Covert Wood is a 26-hectare area of ancient woodland, nestled within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and supporters say it needs protecting. The site comprises a striking broadleaf woodland, quintessential of East Kent, alongside oak, beech, hornbeam and sweet chestnut. There are also swathes of bluebells, wood anemones, bee and purple orchid and other key ancient woodland indicator species.

This ancient woodland, along with its wonderful wildlife, could be sold off in small individual sections, making it impossible to manage for the benefit of nature. If Kent Wildlife Trust don’t manage to raise the money needed, the site may fall into several hands, splitting the Woods off into small sections that would be impossible to nurture for wildlife.

At the time of writing £143,000 has been donated so far, but £319,000 is still being sought for the £462,500 goal and they need help from everyone to secure this land.

You can help by sharing the campaign with your friends, family and colleagues. Let them know how important Covert Wood is for our wonderful wildlife and what a difference their support will make.
