Protect our livestock and wildlife
On a Snowdonian sheep farm, Bill and Ben protect newborn lambs from foxes. They aren't dogs - they are Andean alpacas. They’re called Bill and Ben. But they’re not actually dogs, they’re Andean alpacas who excel at protecting lambs - they are huge, and run towards sounds of distress, scaring off attackers. The Trust looks after acre after acre of places millions call home - rare butterflies, barn owls, wild ponies, seals, otters, shy water voles, red squirrels, red warblers, native deer… They’re all thriving thanks to the love and care of the Trust's members, volunteers, and rangers.
Get up close to our ancestors
Members help to unlock the stories of the past, whehter it's uncovering 4th century Roman mosaics in Gloucestershire, excavating an Iron Age savings fund squirrelled away in a cave, or bringing people closer to the footprints of cavemen. The Trust can work with archaelogists, restoration experts and historians, as well as local communities, schools and volunteers, to help people experience the lives of our ancestors
Those are just five of the many fantastic things the National Trust can look after. So your gift membership will never be wasted. It will be busy working to protect Britain's beautiful places and species for generations to enjoy today and in the future. Join the National Trust today
