International important living space in Poole Harbour, administered by the Dorset wildlife trust in cooperation with the National Trust; part of the Great Heath Living Landscape. The Brownsea Island Nature Reserve is one of the UK's most stunning nature preserves with a wide variety of natural and gamelife. The protected laguna is particularly important for large schools of wintering migratory animals and for nest sites in winter, with an extraordinary view from our aviaries.
Brownsea Island was rescued for wild animals and humans in 1962 when the National Trust rented the north part to the Dorset Wildlife Trust. We have since worked to conserve the habitat of rarer and endangered animals that find refuge in their forests, reeds and lagoons. There' s a half-hour ferry connection to Brownsea Island from 10 am.
