The Nature Fund will help us to respond to the challenges faced by our wildlife and habitats highlighted in the State of Nature report.

The Nature Fund is supporting 20 projects to tackle declining biodiversity and deliver benefits to communities.  The focus of investment is on delivering 5 key priorities in 7 Nature Action Zones across Wales. The 7 geographical areas are:

  • Brecon Beacons
  • Cambrian Mountains
  • Conwy Valley
  • Pembrokeshire coast
  • South Wales Valleys
  • Berwyn and Migneint
  • Llyn Peninsula

The 5 key activities are:

  • action to improve river catchments
  • action on marine ecosystems
  • action for local environment
  • action to realise the potential in our upland areas
  • action to stimulate innovation

Projects range from work to improve river catchments and marine ecosystems, to peatlands restoration and a community project managing woodland.  For the location of projects see the Infographic below.
