Gwent Wildlife Trust (GWT) is appealing for your help to save one of Britain’s most endangered mammals - the water vole.

The trust is asking people to #VoteVoles so they can win money from the Aviva Community Fund 2017.

From October 24 until November 21, 2017, GWT need votes from the general public to help them to secure up to £25,000 for their Saving The Wentloog Water Voles Project. GWT want to use the money to help water voles on the Wentloog Levels - a secretive landscape criss-crossed with drainage ditches, plants and animals - between Cardiff and Newport

GWT’s Project Development Officer Alice Rees said: “We want people to get involved in our Saving The Wentloog Water Voles Project, but we can only carry out this vital work to save water voles, if we get enough votes from the general public.

“Winning the Aviva Community Funding would be fantastic and would allow us to expand our water vole project and get more people, landowners, children and schools involved, on the ground, surveying the Wentloog Levels for water voles.

“The money would enable us to work with communities and in doing so together, ultimately, help to save one of the most endangered mammals in Britain.

“On behalf of the water voles, please can you #VoteVoles and spread the message far and wide!”
