Standing up for wildlife

In the last few years The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales has:

  • managed over 80 of the most ecologically important nature reserves in Wales
  • responded to hundreds of planning applications, in order to protect the local environment from potentially harmful development
  • campaigned for Marine Protected Areas and has fought both the logic and policies which undervalues wildlife and is prepared to sacrifice it for short term gain
  • educated thousands of children and adults of all abilities about the wonders of the natural world on their doorsteps
  • run hundreds of inspiring events for all ages
  • campaigned tirelessly against an poorly researched blanket cull of badgers in Pembrokeshire whilst working closely with WAG to support the development of alternatives to culling such as vaccination
  • worked shoulder to shoulder with landowners entrusted with wildlife rich habitats to help them keep them healthy and safe for the future
