Adopt a Cemlyn Sandwich Tern with North Wales Wildlife Trust

Price: £10 including postage and packing within the UK
What you'll receive: Adoption pack includes a fantastic Sandwich Tern photo giftcard by professional wildlife photographer Graham Eaton, a factsheet about Cemlyn Nature Reserve and a personalised adoption certificate.
Additional: Cemlyn is a coastal nature reserve located on Anglesey, North Wales. The site’s tern colony, which regularly hosts Arctic, Common and Sandwich Terns is the main focus of conservation work at Cemlyn. Because of disturbance at their traditional breeding areas, due to increased coastal access and development, terns have declined historically in Britain, so sites like Cemlyn, which still hold healthy populations, are a precious and nationally importance resource. Two wardens are employed every summer, to monitor and protect the terns. Your adoption will help support the annual cost of employing seasonal wardens.
