Hunting for clues during Wales Biodiversity Week

The 5th  to 13th June will mark Wales’s Biodiversity week, an opportunity to celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity and a great chance for people in Wales to get involved.

The Minister for Environment Sustainability and Housing came along to the National Museum on the International Day of Biodiversity to see the amazing things happening all over Wales as part of the celebration and once again reiterated her intention to put sustainability at the heart of the work of the Welsh Assembly Government.  Whilst we welcome this sentiment, we are continuing to remind politicians of the importance of biodiversity to all aspects of our everyday lives.

Ancient trees can be found all over Wales and are home to some amazing wildlife

Coed Cadw (the Woodland Trust in Wales) has arranged an ancient tree trail through Bute Park in Cardiff as part of the “Woodland Trust Goes to Town” initiative which will be visiting each of the regions this year.  The tree trail allows children to hunt in the park for signs of the kinds of creatures and plants who live in ancient and veteran trees. 

Free packs including sticker booklets are available from the National Museum and Cardiff Castle’s Gift shop until13th June and at the brand new Summerhouse Kiosk in Bute Park.  Why not pop along and get involved in local biodiversity?
