Iolo Williams

TV presenter and Wildlife Trusts Wales ambassador Iolo Williams is a Welsh Wildlife Hero and wants everyone to do their bit to protect nature.

Welsh Wildlife Heroes is a national campaign run by Wildlife Trusts Wales and funded entirely by the money collected from the single-use carrier bag charge in The Co-operative food stores and pharmacies in Wales. 

The focus of Welsh Wildlife Heroes is supporting native species and improving habitats for some of Wales’ rarest and most endangered wildlife, and empowering the people of Wales to become wildlife heroes themselves by taking small steps in their gardens or local communities. People can pledge to feed birds, create a home for wildlife, plant a wildflower garden or dig a pond.

“I’m delighted to join Gwent Wildlife Trust and the local community to support the important work that’s done to protect our pollinators. Attracting bees, insects and other wildlife to our gardens and green spaces is vital for the survival of our planet.

“Nature’s miracles are in your back garden and we can all do something small to help them thrive. I hope that many people will become a Welsh Wildlife Hero by pledging to give wildlife a home.”
