Despite conservation successes in recent years, Welsh wildlife is declining as the number of pressures it faces continues to rise.
This funding will help to tackle these pressures by enabling us to better understand how we can operate effectively in a modern world while sustaining a resilient and healthy environment in Wales. Good management of our ecosystems is essential, as it not only benefits the environment, but can help make us more resilient to climate change and extreme weather events such as flooding.
– Alun Davies, Natural Resources Minister
Wales is blessed with some of the most beautiful and unique wildlife in the UK and is really important that we take action to protect it now so that we, and our future generations, can it enjoy it for many years to come.
