Unknown Wales – the premiere wildlife conference
Since 2011 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 2019
Date: Saturday 26th October

Secretive birds, rare sharks and lesser known bees are some of our ‘unknown’ subjects for this year’s Unknown Wales Conference. Discover facts you may not know about the beautiful but invasive Himalayan Balsam, things you almost certainly didn’t know about slime moulds (not slimy and not mould!). Plus there will be information from public participation projects across Wales including ways to get involved and discover our fascinating Welsh wildlife for yourself. See below the full program of talks.
In partnership with the National Museum Wales – Amgueddfa Cymru
