Cambrian Wildwood

Description

Cambrian Wildwood is a project to restore the wildwood to a large area of the Cambrian Mountains in Wales. It involves the full ecological restoration of several hundred acres of land, increasing to several thousand acres in the long term. Habitat restoration of native woodland and other natural areas will be followed up with reintroduction of native animals to create a complete functioning natural ecosystem.

The project has not yet started on the ground, as it depends on purchasing land. We are currently raising the money for this by inviting people to become Wildwood Founders, which you can do by going on our website. Once the project starts on the ground, the Wildwood area will be fully accessible to the public free of charge, so that people can enjoy the area on foot, or bicycle or horseback, camping in the wild, and pursuing adventure activities. There will be opportunities to join in with the restoration work including tree planting by joining volunteer activities.

Coed Cymru

Description

Coed Cymru began as a campaigning body to heighten awareness of native woodlands, particularly among the farming community who own most of these woodlands. In 1986 a network of woodland advisors was established, based in County Council and National Park offices. The Coed Cymru Central office at Tregynon provides the communication, technical and administrative support necessary to maintain the cohesion of the organisation.

Four clear roles have emerged for Coed Cymru: to be a a provider of free and impartial help, advice and training; to promote co-operation between woodland owners, woodland contractors and timber users; to develop hardwood timber products and markets to ensure that broadleaf woodlands have a firm economic base which will ensure their continued management; and to be an advocate for broadleaf woodland in Wales and to act as a catalyst to bring about environmental, economic and social benefits through sustainable woodland management.

Coed Cymru has also taken an active role in developing new products from Welsh softwood timber including an innovative timber building system called Ty Unnos which produces high standards of energy efficiency from local products.

Wildlife Trusts Wales

Description

Wildlife Trusts Wales works in partnership with the six local Wildlife Trusts in Wales: North Wales, Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, Brecknock, Gwent, and South and West Wales.

Wildlife Trusts Wales believe passionately that wildlife and natural processes need to have space to thrive, beyond designated nature reserves and other protected sites. To achieve this it is vital that the richest wildlife sites are protected and sustained as a starting point from which nature can spread back into our wider landscapes. And at sea we must also protect areas now for a future when our marine wildlife can thrive more widely.

Society needs this as much as our wildlife does. A healthy natural environment is the foundation for everything that is of value to people – food, water, shelter, flood prevention, health, happiness and creative inspiration. It’s the source of our prosperity and our wellbeing. We want to inspire people about the natural world so that they value it, understand their relationship with it and take action to protect and restore it.

Our network of local Wildlife Trusts is the largest voluntary organisation in Wales dedicated to protecting wildlife and wild places. Together we manage 216 nature reserves covering more than 8,000 hectares, and we are supported by 25,000 members.
