Marine Planning and Sustainable Development

All of the Wildlife Trusts in Wales are working with developers, including the rapidly-growing offshore windfarm industry, to make sure that development is wildlife-friendly.

WTSWW is a partner in cutting edge research on Skomer Island, tracking seabird movements, which will help ensure that offshore development takes account of seabird movements throughout the year. We are currently raising funds to support long term research of guillemot populations on Skomer Island.

We also respond to applications for permission to undertake marine developments such as dredging for aggregates, making sure that the need to protect and enhance the marine environment is fully taken on board.
