WELSH NATURE IS UNDER THREAT
From coastal dunes to peat moorlands, Wales has stunning natural landscapes. Our country is home to many wild plants and animals, from bottlenose dolphins in Cardigan Bay to the Snowdon lily in our mountains.
But Welsh nature is under threat. Many of our plants and wildlife are in decline.
Despite some positive signs - such as the recovery of the red kite – the overall picture is concerning.
One in 14 species in Wales is at risk of disappearing altogether and butterfly species have declined by 60%.
