What we do
The breathtaking landscapes and habitats of Wales are teeming with wildlife. See choughs swooping above coastal cliffs, red kites soaring over rugged woodland and grey seals lazing along the coast. Hear noisy gannets nesting on Grassholm Island and the bubbling calls of black grouse. The variety of wildlife in Wales is huge - and you can experience the best bits with us. Our work in Wales helps protect this wonderful wildlife and the places they live.
