Hand lenses

10x18mm hand loupe, an essential part of any naturalists' kit (especially for looking at grasses!). Each lens comes with its own box, and thick lanyard with safety release catch. Even if you have no idea what you're looking at, having a lens round your neck will certainly make you look like a proper ecologist! (Apologies for high postage, it's because they're parcel thickness - same price if you buy two though!)

£5 plus P&P


Extinct Bee Prints

Print of "Eighteen Extinct Bees of England" - very kindly donated by the artist Shane Swann.

This print is a tribute to the world's declining bee population and the bee species that have already been lost from England. The print is A3 in size. It will be posted to you in a protective plastic sleeve, between two strong pieces of cardboard to protect it from bending.Each print includes a full species list and extinction dates.

An alternative way that you can support the vital work of The Species Recovery Trust is to purchase some of our beautifully designed flora and fauna notecards. These A6 notecards come in four different designs, displaying four species that are all endangered in the UK, but which the Species Recovery Trust are trying to protect.

These have been created by two British wildlife artists, Cath Hodsman and Sarah Jane Martin, on behalf of The Species Recovery Trust.  Both women are passionate about nature and show this through the exquisite art they produce.

By buying these notecards you will be helping ensure that Britain’s future wildlife is robust, healthy, and above all still here!
