The Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales

Description

The second oldest wildlife trust in the UK and the only voluntary conservation organisation caring for all wildlife and habitats in South and West Wales. The Trust aims, in addition to conservation and appreciation of wildlife, to work closely with all industries within the community to ensure best practice in countryside management to benefit wildlife and people alike. It is proactive in supporting development to true sustainability in environmental and economic terms.

The Trust runs over 80 nature reserves and this diverse area boasts magnificent coastline, islands, rugged mountains, the heritage rich ex-coalmining valleys and the richest agricultural land in Wales. It is the guardian of the largest colony of grey seals in Britain, the largest population of puffins in southern Britain and one of three bottlenose dolphin colonies. Relies heavily on the support of outside organisations and individuals through sponsorship, donations, visitors and membership to the trust.
