Our work is supported by a number of funders and organisations, including:
Natural Resources Wales
Through an annual grant the Natural Resources Wales support some of our very important conservation work in south and west Wales.
Wales Cooperative Centre
The Wales Cooperative Centre assisted us with the cost of our new website, alongside our local groups who fundraised directly for it. The Wales Cooperative Centre are a partner organisation in Communities 2.0 which is a Welsh Assembly fund which enables new and existing enterprises to benefit from ICT.
We were given ERDF funding to improve the visitor experience at the Welsh Wildlife Centre. This included the giant willow badger, willow maze, icecream bike and much more. This was essential funding to ensure longer term stability for the Trust.
The Waterloo Foundation
The Waterloo Foundation was set up to support environmental, global development, Welsh and children’s projects. The Foundation has supported a number of our projects over the years.

Have you ever wondered what happens to all those five pences that we pay when we’ve forgotten our shopping bags? In Wales, all branches of The Co-op donate the single-use carrier bag charge to Wildlife Trusts Wales so that we can continue our work to protect wildlife for the future.
Working in partnership with the Co-op we deliver the Welsh Wildlife Heroes project which is themed around health and wellbeing and encourages people to get more active in their community through volunteering. The Co-op is an active partner and engages its members, customers and colleagues to support the project. Visit www.coop.co.uk for more information.
