'The Lundy team and I are always deeply touched when somebody considers the island worthy of a gift in their will. These gifts help us to protect the island’s wildlife, above and below the waves, as well as its notable archaeological and architectural heritage. Thank you for considering a gift in your will which will help ensure that future generations can explore and enjoy our unique island.'
Derek Green, Lundy General Manager
Why remember Lundy?
A gift in your will to Lundy will contribute to the protection of the island, its flora, fauna and marine life. The Landmark Trust and islanders, in partnership with the National Trust and Natural England, work together to protect and preserve Lundy. However, this work in caring for the island is expensive. To ensure that future generations can explore and enjoy this unique and unspoiled island please consider supporting us through a gift in your will.
