"These imaginative gift ideas show just some of the wonderful ways that charities are working to care for our finest landscapes and most endangered wildlife. Buying your loved-ones one of these unusual and thoughtful presents means that they can also play their part in safeguarding our natural heritage," Spelman said.
Some examples of gifts include:
- The Wildlife Trust is organising adoption schemes to help keep wildflower meadows in bloom. A gift will go to individual Trusts in the recipient’s local area.
- The RSPB offering the chance to sponsor for £20 a Puffin by helping to provide safer nesting sites on its coastal reserves. A £28 gift will allow the RSPB to plant 10 metres of hedgerow.
- The National Trust is offering the chance to sponsor a stretch of Devon coastline or restore a mountain footpath.
