Local Wildlife Sites in South East Wales

We at the Wildlife Trusts are working to locate Wildlife Sites and work with their owners to safeguard them for the future.

What are Local Wildlife Sites?

Wildlife SitesLocal Wildlife Sites are a way of recognising some of the best places for wildlife locally. They are areas considered to be of particular conservation value because of the habitats or species they support.

Local Wildlife Sites play a crucial role by providing wildlife refuges, protecting threatened species and habitats, and acting as links and corridors between other valuable sites.
