Adopt a Wirebird

At the Trust we are proud to be leading conservation of the Wirebird: the island’s only surviving endemic land bird, which is categorised as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.

Each January we complete a census and year round we manage habitat and control predators.

You can support the good work of the Trust and help conserve the St Helena Plover (aka Wirebird) through a donation of just £10.

Plant an endemic tree

One of the most significant areas of the Trust’s work is the managed area of Millennium Forest that extends over some 19 ha of the 225 ha National Conservation Area: a highly eroded site with little original soil, situated on the edge of the area once known as the Great Wood.

Established as a Community Forest project principally for endemic Gumwood and Ebony restoration, Millennium Forest has been a flagship project since the Trust’s formation, receiving recognition with an international Blue Turtle Award for nature conservation in 2010.

Sponsored tree planting supports the ongoing restoration work at Millennium Forest and recognises individual commitment to conservation of St Helena’s endemic environment. At just £10 per tree, it also provides a unique way to mark a special event or make a dedication to a loved one.
