Teifi Marshes

  • Teifi Marsh is a Welsh wetland reserve with a great diversity of wildlife from Water Buffalo to warblers and woodland birds.

"Wildlife needs water, and where there's water there's life. Trouble is - over the last few centuries we've lost a number of wetlands in the UK.


"The places we do have are important and worth looking after. But don't take my word for it - go and see for yourself. The real world is much better than the telly world…"
