Brecknock - Ystradfawr.

On Easter Sunday 1st April 2018 a new era of wildlife conservation in mid Wales will begin as Brecknock Wildlife Trust (BWT) will become part of The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales (WTSWW). Brecknock Wildlife Trust was a small Trust in a wonderful area, with 18 Nature Reserves stretching from Ystradfawr in the west to Glasbury close to Hay on Wye in the East. It was becoming increasingly diffi cult to raise funds in this area with a small, predominantly rural population and ultimately, the Trustees felt that a merger with another Wildlife Trust was the best

way to maintain and develop the conservation work in Brecknock whilst keeping a strong local identity. BWT and WTSWW share a common border of over 60 miles, as well as two major river catchments and already worked in partnership on projects like Red Squirrel Conservation. The overriding objective of the merger is to create an organisation which will be eff ective in the longer term in developing and promoting environmental conservation and habitat improvement over a wide area of Wales and its surrounding Marine environment.

Following the merger; WTSWW will manage over 100 amazing Nature Reserves. Sarah Kessell, Chief Executive Offi cer for WTSWW said “We already have good links with the staff and are looking forward to welcoming them to the WTSWW team and getting to know their members, volunteers and of course their nature reserves. High on my list of priority visits will be Vicarage Meadows SSSI, one of Brecknock’s most botanically rich reserves, covered by a carpet of orchids in the summer and home to small pearl bordered fritillary butterfl ies.”
