The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales are embarking on an
ambitious new wildlife survey of all the residential gardens of
Cardiff, aiming to discover the hidden biodiversity treasures that live
in our capital City.
The Wildlife Trust are asking all residents of Cardiff to get involved in the
survey by recording the wildlife in their gardens.
A frame grab of a section of the form:
As well as wildlife, the survey will also identify habitat features such as ponds, hedgerows, log piles and nest boxes all of which help to create mini nature reserves, providing food and homes for some of Wales' rarest animals.
Thanks to funding from Environment Wales a specialised wildlife recording form will be delivered with the 'Cardiff Post' to all households in June/July and will contain further details of how to get involved.
In addition a photo guide will be made available on our website to help in species identification.
The results of the survey will give the Wildlife Trust and residents of Cardiff an opportunity to learn more about the plants and animals on our doorstep, which will allow all of us to help appreciate and protect the wildlife we share our lives with.
