Category: My Wild Cardiff

CardiffBayWetlandReserve-RichardSutcliffe#MyWildCardiff is funded by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery (PPL) and will concentrate on engaging local people in Cardiff with their natural environment and raising awareness of how they can help urban wildlife thrive.

Our capital city is home to lots of exciting and sometimes even rare wildlife. Hazel Dormice, Great Crested Newts and waxcap fungi are among just a few of the species that would be the pride of any nature reserve area flourishing in our wild city.  Cardiff even has its own species of wildflower!

The Wildlife Trust will aim to work closely with local communities in and around Cardiff to provide outdoor learning opportunities for the benefit of both wildlife and people in the city. The project will focus on introducing wild spaces into local neighborhoods. Local schools will also be invited to learn more about their local wildlife and the importance of raising this awareness to the younger generation.

We would love to see your photos of wildlife around the city, whether it’s frogs in your garden or otters on the River Taff. Send them through to Rose at The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales via email for a chance to be featured on our social media pages.”

People’s Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery which has awarded an amazing £142 million to good causes since its launch in 2008. Support from players makes a huge difference to hundreds of communities with funding awarded to numerous grass root groups and local projects as well as national and international charities.
