About Size of Wales

Size of Wales is a Welsh charity, headquartered in Cardiff, and they’re working to protect forests.

People often use the phrase ‘an area the size of Wales’ to refer to how forests are declining. The charity is working to turn that on its head.

They recently set a new goal – protecting an area of forest twice the size of Wales!


What WWF is doing

We have been proud to work with Size of Wales for a number of years, protecting forests in the Kwale-Kilifi and Boni-Dodori regions of Kenya. They are in an area known as Coastal Kenya.

We have recently started a new partnership with Size of Wales. Their support will be a part of WWF-UK’s Coastal Kenya Programme, which is also grateful for the support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery and the UK Government through the Department for International Development.
