Wildlife Guardians are like-minded individuals who are financially committed to protecting the natural heritage of Gwent. Within living memory our county was rich with birdsong, colourful wildflowers and a glorious abundance of native wild animals and plants.
Today, it is a very different story. Many of our precious wildlife species are in decline or dangerously close to extinction. Agricultural intensification, urban development and climate changes have all had an impact on our landscape over the last century. Woodlands have been cleared, wetlands drained and hedgerows removed.
Gwent Wildlife Trust is determined to do something about this. We will create landscapes where wildlife is flourishing and recovering from past decline. This approach to conservation is called Living Landscapes. We have already begun, by making our nature reserves even bigger, even better and where we can, we’re linking them together.
By joining the Wildlife Guardians, you will play a big part in protecting our wildlife and creating this landscape. Gwent Wildlife Trust already has an impressive track record of conservation successes; with your help we can work even harder to protect local wildlife for future generations.
