Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff
Find out more information about how we're bringing nature back into our city.
Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff is a partnership project delivered by RSPB Cymru, Cardiff Council Community Ranger Service and Buglife Cymru. This project aims to engage local communities and children across Cardiff with nature through our free school outreach programme, nature-based events and by supporting communities to create pollinator-friendly habitats. This project has been made possible through funding from the National Lottery Community Fund.
Cardiff may be the capital city of Wales, but it’s also one of the most wildlife rich cities in the UK.
From the amazing Bute Park with over 3000 trees to Grangemoor Park, rich in wildflowers and insects. St Fagan’s is a hotspot for bats. Peregrines nest on City Hall and the rivers that flow through the city are home to otters, water voles and thousands of migrating salmon.
But many people are unaware of and increasingly disconnected from Cardiff’s amazing urban wildlife; in Wales only one child in eight is reasonably connected with the natural environment. Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff is working to change this.
Join us in enabling communities across Cardiff to spend more time, more regularly outdoors experiencing and enjoying the nature on our doorsteps and help Cardiff grow richer in wildlife for people to enjoy.
Despite being a modern urban city, Cardiff is home to a surprising amount of wildlife. Why not discover the wildlife you share your city with?
#WildCardiff in action
To mark the launch of Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff, Cardiff Muslim Primary School helped us re-wild a record-breaking line of over 250 wellies, for people and pollinators to enjoy in the heart of the city.
