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!

My Wild Cardiff is all about looking after this wonderful wildlife by educating and inspiring people to care for Cardiff’s wildlife, through looking after the wild spaces we have and creating new habitat in our parks and gardens.

Follow the links above to find out how you can create a wildlife-friendly garden, learn more about projects we are working on in Cardiff that you can get involved in, see our upcoming events in the Cardiff area and sign up for our mailing list.

My Wild Cardiff is funded through the generous support of the players of People’s Postcode Lottery (PPL).

People’s Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery.

Players play with their postcodes to win cash prizes, while raising money for charities and good causes across Great Britain and globally.

A minimum of 30% goes directly to charities and players have raised over £200 Million for good causes across the country. It costs £10 for 10 draws paid monthly in advance with prizes every day.

Find out more about PPL here.
