Hertfordshire and Middlesex Wildlife Trust

Sponsor a Konik Pony
Hertfordshire's wet grasslands are home to an array of wildlife, including many nationally important species. As such they must be managed correctly in order to retain their natural diversity and prevent them from becoming overgrown. This takes time and can be costly, but through your sponsorship we are able to continue using konik ponies as part of our conservation grazing programme to protect these special habitats for the future.
Cost: £20.00 including postage and packing within UK
What you receive: Sponsors will receive: Personalised sponsorship certificate, a fact sheet about your sponsored species, a photograph and a map of Rye Meads Nature Reserve. All funds raised will contribute to HMWT’s conservation work protecting habitats and species across the two counties.
