Our ambitions for land and nature in Wales 

Our countryside isn't as nature friendly as it used to be. We've lost over 50% of our wildlife in 50 years. The good news is we can reverse this trend, if we give nature a helping hand. As Europe's biggest conservation charity, we can make our countryside a better place for wildlife.

Magnificent meadows in Wales 

Taking a stroll through a wild meadow at sunrise or sunset in summer is a magical moment. Sadly, around 97% of meadows have been lost since the 1930’s, but through the ‘Save Our Magnificent Meadows’ partnership project, we have revived and restored meadow landscapes across Wales, for everyone to enjoy.
