A conservation group from South Wales has reached the finals of the Sustain Wales Awards.
The group – Gwern y Domen Conservation Group – who help to look after areas near our romantic glamping Wales destinations, has been successfully nominated for the Sustainable Community award, an accolade bestowed on groups or projects which have been effective in creating a positive change within their communities.
Originally, the group was created to assist in the protection of land in the areas of Rudry and Cearphilly, as well as encouraging growth on the land too.
The group was prevalent in its efforts to highlight the importance of environmental sustainability through the mediums of educational events. They took the opportunity to offer wildflower tours, bat and moth spotting events, as well hosting a tea-party in the meadows.
Speaking in regards the Gwern y Domen Conservation Group, BBC wildlife presenter Iolo Williams said: “Heartiest congratulations to the Gwern y Domen Conservation Group for being chosen as finalists in the Sustain Wales awards. Your commitment in fighting for the wildlife-rich green spaces on the edge of Caerphilly against all the odds is an example to us all.
The winners of the Sustain Wales Awards are set to be unveiled on Thursday November 17th.
