Gwent Wildlife Trust
Gwent Wildlife Trust is the leading conservation organisation in Gwent. With the support of our thousands of members and hundreds of volunteers, we're protecting and wildlife and restoring wild places across Gwent and reconnecting people of all ages with nature.
Our thoughts are with everyone at this difficult time. GWT staff will be sharing updates about spring wildlife and ways to connect with nature (even while self-isolating) on our website, in emails and on Social Media.
The outbreak of COVID-19 across the UK is affecting many areas of our work. For more information about whether this affects how you support us or engage with us, please visit our Coronavirus update page.
