The purpose of the Trust is to support research and to encourage young scientists through the provision of grants for projects that benefit bees and beekeeping in Britain.

The Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust (DPHT) is committed to preserving the Dartmoor Pony on Dartmoor.

By giving in your Will or Legacy, you will help us to preserve the Dartmoor pony in its native habitat.
