Buy a corner of
Suffolk for nature

Every £1 you give will buy £3 of nature reserve

Thanks to your generosity and a £4 million grant from Heritage Lottery Fund, our vision to to buy and restore 384 acres of land for wildlife in the Broads National Park are taking flight.

The scale of this opportunity is unprecedented in the Trust's history - in every way. Securing the land purchase means we can begin putting water back in to the landscape, creating a vast new wetland that will attract a spectacular array of wildlife. By 2020 a brand new eco-build visitor centre will welcome visitors from far and wide to the southern gateway of the Broads National Park.

We are inching ever closer to our £1 million match fundraising target and every £1 you can give will be tripled by other funding (including Heritage Lottery Fund).

With your help we are creating a wilder landscape for nature.


So far we’ve raised £909,492 - Thank you!

90% raised!

This is an outstanding reserve with huge potential that I got to know through repeat visits to see the American Bittern. The inclusive and welcoming staff and excellent organization made each visit a pleasure. It was also good to see how the reserve was amicably shared with dog walkers and other recreational users. I wish you every success with this project.

I think it is wonderful you have raised so much money to save the marshes for wildlife for ever and I am glad I could help to achieve this goal.
