The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales is one of 47 Wildlife Trusts across the UK. We are the fourth largest in area, covering from Cardiff and Caerphilly in the east to Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire in the west, and include four of the west Wales islands amongst our 90 or so nature reserves. It formed in 2002 when the old trusts of Glamorgan and West Wales merged.
