The Dorset Wildlife Trust is appealing to the Prime Minister for help to save disappearing wildlife.

The Trust warns we could lose animals and plants if David Cameron doesn't prioritise the environment.

Ministers will need to choose how much money farmers will get in the Common Agricultural Policy and the Trust are hoping the government will opt for supporting farmers who follow the voluntary Rural Development Programme.

DWT's West Dorset area manager, Debbie Watkins said, "The Rural Development Programme supports our precious wildlife and landscape, and the rural economy brings benefits to our health and well-being."

The two main choices the government faces are between giving farmers money over direct payments with environmental clauses, or giving financial help to farmers who support RDP.
