Female Director for RSPB Cymru
She said: "I'm delighted to have been appointed Director and to be leading RSPB Cymru at such an exciting and important time for nature conservation".
"The next few years are really make or break time to save some of our characteristic wildlife in Wales".
"We are campaigning for more investment in protecting and enhancing wildlife and its habitats".
"Getting more land managed for nature can have many benefits, such as improving people's quality of life, and providing opportunities to enjoy wildlife close up, as well protecting our natural assets such as water and soils that are so important in the context of climate change".
