Unknown Wales Wildlife Conference

Unknown Wales Wildlife Conference

Unknown Wales – the premiere wildlife conference

Since 2012 the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales has collaborated with National Museum Wales to bring together some of the experts in their individual field.

Set up to shine a light on the slightly less glamorous species within this beautiful country, the conference has heard talks on slugs, spiders, whelks and many other incredibly important species that live with us.

Always entertaining, always enlightening and never dull. Join Us.


Unknown Wales 2018

At Unknown Wales this year there was a wide ranging selection of talks on some of the amazing creatures we are lucky enough to have in Wales.

We learnt about why it’s important to count our seabirds, a plan to reintroduce the Beaver back into Wales, the mineralogical riches of Dolyhir quarry, and the threats facing the Gwent levels.

We also found out about Wales’ rarest freshwater snail, the conservation tools used for the white-clawed crayfish, and the Nathusius’ pipistrelle bat in Cardiff.
