Thank you so much for your support for the project.
The auction just closed and the land was sold for £116,000, so we were outbid by a huge margin.
We're so sad about the result but so glad that you were so amazing in your response. Raising £59,000 in just a few days was truly spectacular.
It's certainly heartening to know that there are so many people who care so much for wildlife that they're willing to help a little community, sometimes from the other side of the world! We'll do what we can to work with the new owners to protect the site.
We will close the crowdfunder in a moment and your fantastic pledges will be refunded. The crowdfunder site says that refunds should be processed within 5 working days, so please keep an eye out.
Thanks again for your support. It's made us all the more determined to do what we can to make our little patch of the world greener.
