Sir David Attenborough has urged people to get behind Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s campaign to raise £1million and create a giant nature reserve for people and wildlife in the Suffolk Broads.
Following initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Trust now has the unprecedented opportunity to buy land flanking the existing nature reserve at Carlton and Oulton Marshes to form 1,000 acres of wildness in the Broads National Park. It is hoped the site will ultimately become the Suffolk Broads National Nature Reserve.
The land purchase, the biggest attempted in the Trust’s 55 year history, will lead to the creation of a mix of wet habitats that so many nationally rare animals and plants depend on.
As part of their fund raising campaign we teamed up with the Suffolk Wildlife Trust to make this stunning new tshirt design that became for sale across the Trust's website with all profits going to help fund this exciting new project. Originally starting life as a paper cut we used our design called 'Nature Boy' that has the striking silhouette of a Marsh Harrier surrounded by a spiral of leaves.
The shirt is for sale here and can be seen above sported by wildlife expert, author and photographer Chris Packham.
