The BV magazine has a strong and visual connection to Dorset wildlife and nature. Our website provides a wealth of information for nature enthusiasts and outdoor adventurers, covering a variety of topics ranging from the fascinating animals and plants that call Dorset home to the breathtaking landscapes and ecosystems that make the county so special.
With its varied landscapes, from rugged coastlines to rolling hills and deep forests, Dorset is home to an incredible range of creatures, from iconic species like red deer and badgers to more elusive and rare animals like the sand lizard and the greater horseshoe bat. Wildlife writer Jane Adams provides a monthly column in which she celebrates the ways in which we might enjoy the Dorset wildlife right outside our doors, and in conjunction with Dorset Wildlife Trust, BV magazine provides the latest news and updates on all of these animals, as well as expert insights into their biology, behaviour, and conservation.
Another key area of interest for us is The Blackmore Vale itself, a region within North Dorset that is renowned for its natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. The Vale is characterized by its folded hills, picturesque villages, and historic landmarks, making it a favorite destination for hikers, cyclists, and anyone looking to escape the hustle for a quiet spell in ‘The Shires’. BV magazine covers all of the Vale’s top attractions, from its charming pubs and tearooms to its breathtaking views and hidden gems.
At BV magazine, we also prioritize environmentalism and conservation. We recognize that the protection of Dorset’s wildlife and natural resources is critical for both current and future generations. Our expert contributors explore the challenges facing the county’s ecosystems and offer practical solutions for preserving and enhancing them, whether through habitat restoration, public education, or policy advocacy.
In addition to our regular features on Dorset wildlife and The Blackmore Vale, BV magazine also offers a variety of practical resources for nature enthusiasts and outdoor adventurers. Our event calendar also highlights any nature-themed activities and festivals happening in Dorset each month. Whether you’re a seasoned naturalist or simply looking to connect with the beauty and wonder of Dorset’s natural world, BV magazine is your go-to source for all things wildlife, nature, and conservation.
