Sponsor a great crested newt

Great Crested NewtThe great crested newt is declining throughout Europe, largely due to loss of habitat. Because of this, and the fact that Britain is considered a stronghold, the newt is strictly protected. The ponds in Little Wittenham Wood hold one of Britain's largest known populations of the great crested newt. Up to 3,000 animals breed in the ponds each year.

Sponsoring a newt today will to help us protect this crucially important woodland site into the future and monitor newt populations.
