Unknown Wales 2012

Following on from the success of last year’s Unknown Wales Conference, the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales (WTSWW) and the National Museum Wales (NMW) have decided to hold the Unknown Wales Conference again in 2012.

Over 200 delegates attended the 2011 conference, which was opened by naturalist and television presenter Iolo Williams and covered a wide variety of wildlife topics. It is hoped that the Unknown Wales Conferences will become an annual event – dedicated to celebrating Welsh Wildlife and encouraging people to enjoy nature.
