Ken Skates AM with Adrian Lloyd Jones at the reserve

Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, Ken Skates, has visited one of North Wales Wildlife Trust's most beautiful reserves.

Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, Ken Skates, took to the great outdoors last week with a visit to North Wales Wildlife Trust’s amazing Gors Maen Llwyd nature reserve. Here he saw some of the wildlife in this upland heather moorland which is home to many upland birds, plants and insects.

Using bikes hired from Welsh Water’s Llyn Brenig Visitor Centre, the Deputy Minister joined North Wales Wildlife Trust’s Adrian Lloyd-Jones and Wildlife Trusts Wales’ James Byrne to explore the reserve.

Adrian and James highlighted to the Deputy Minister that Welsh wildlife offers an amazing visitor experience with charismatic and flagship species such as black grouse and hen harriers. Both James and Adrian emphasised the economic case for investing in the high quality natural environment of Wales and its new high profile wildlife tourism projects such as beaver re-introduction.

The Wildlife Trusts in Wales work with Visit Wales to deliver high quality wildlife tourism experiences.
