The Purbeck Heaths are nationally and internationally important for rare and threatened wildlife. To ensure that the amazing diversity of wildlife that inhabits the heaths can not only survive but thrive, a partnership of the RSPB, National Trust, Natural England and Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are expanding the naturalised grazing system at National Trust’s Hartland Moor and Natural England’s Stoborough Heath to encompass RSPB Arne.

The project will create a “mini New Forest” in the area between Stoborough, Corfe Castle and Arne near Wareham, with cattle, ponies and pigs roaming across an area of 1370 ha at the heart of the Purbeck Heaths National Nature Reserve.

This event is a walk and talk about the project led by the National Trust. Full details can be found HERE

This is part of the Planet Purbeck Festival which takes place between 20-26th September and Purbeck Heaths Week.
