Species Champions

The Species Champion project pairs at-risk species with elected politicians; Wales Environment Link works with Assembly Members (AMs) in Wales, whilst our sister Links work with Westminster, the Scottish Parliament and the Northern Ireland Assembly. Our initiative gives political representation and awareness to wildlife under threat, as we keep our AMs briefed on their species and up to date on population developments and habitat initiatives. See all of our AM Species Champions below and click on the species to find out more. We also send out updates on the project through the Species Champion newsletter.
