Rewilding in action – restoring habitats and species,
connecting people with wildlife and wild places
On moonlit moors, beneath sunny glades, in leafy woods and by fern fringed rivers, a wild landscape awaits. Red squirrels in the treetops, wild horses on the hills, water voles by the riverbank, pine martens slinking down tree trunks. Follow trails through the Wildwood, and camp under the stars. This will be the Cambrian Wildwood, a place to immerse yourself in nature, a retreat for animals and people.
Wales Wild Land Foundation is a visionary organisation, which refuses to accept that the natural world needs to remain devastated and almost bereft of life. Its intention to buy and rewild a large area of land in Wales is one I strongly support. I believe it will make our world richer and more enchanting, and will help repopulate it with wonder and delight.George Monbiot
LAND ACQUIRED FOR CAMBRIAN WILDWOOD
We are delighted to announce that Bwlch Corog was acquired in May 2017 for Cambrian Wildwood. Woodland will be restored and wildlife returned to the 350 acre site. For more information on Bwlch Corog click on button just below.
LILLETH THE LYNX
Following the escape of Lilleth the lynx from Borth Zoo, near to our project area, there has been some fake news circulating. It was claimed on Radio 4’s Farming Today programme on 9th November that our project intends to release lynx. This is completely inaccurate. Cambrian Wildwood has no intention of reintroducing lynx or any other large carnivore, and considers that the Cambrian Mountains is unsuited to such a programme due to the predominance of livestock farming in the area.
How you can help
We are continuing to raise money to buy land for Cambrian Wildwood, to establish a substantial area for wildlife. Watch our fundraising appeal video with Sue Jones-Davies and George Monbiot to find out why and how you could help.
