TREKMATES X BUGLIFE: saving the small things that run the planet
Trekmates are proud to support Buglife, the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates, who are actively working to save Britain’s rarest little animals.
In January, the Trekmates Team pledged to double the funding for the Ladybird Spider Project. A tiny spider, that was rediscovered on a Dorset heathland in 1980, where only a few individuals remained. Since then, Buglife have been working on the project to carefully manage the Ladybird spider population. Each year a few spiders are moved on to new heathland sites, with the aim of establishing more sites where the spider can thrive naturally. Trekmates have designed a range of junior gloves with a silicone spider pattern for AW21 to support and raise awareness of the Ladybird Spider Project and the Buglife organisation.
