Plantlife Cymru

'Working to protect the wild plants of Wales'

Plantlife is the charity that is speaking up for the nation’s wild plants. We work hard to protect wild plants on the ground and to build understanding of the vital role they play in everyone’s lives. Wild plants are essential to life – they clean our air and water, provide food and shelter for our insects, birds and animals and are critical in the fight against climate change. For conservation of plants in the wild to be successful, Plantlife believes that it must become the responsibility, willingly accepted, of all sectors of society: businesses, institutions, landowners, farmers, individuals, and the wider community.

PONT Pori Natur a Threftadaeth

'Grazing is Amazing'

PONT is a not-for-profit organisation which exists to encourage and facilitate grazing for the benefit of the wildlife, landscape and cultural heritage of Wales.

PONT brings together and shares knowledge, expertise and practical skills on conservation and grazing across Wales. The aim is to collaborate with those in the farming, conservation, local communities and other interest groups to help deliver practical grazing solutions that benefit the various interests in an integrated manner.

Current priorities:

  • To support and enthuse farmers to manage their land for food, community benefit and nature
  • To enthuse and educate local communities to use and enjoy the countryside in a responsible manner.
  • To bridge the gap between town and country to increase opportunities to work together for common benefits.
  • To work with environmental organisations to build their knowledge and capacity to work with the farming community to develop solutions to nature conservation challenges.
