STEP INTO THE WILD COLLABORATION

Step into the Wild has taken an area of over 100 acres, in South Wales, and is working with The Wildlife Trust, The Woodland Trust and Natural Resources Wales, in a huge re-wilding project in the hope to return the natural grasslands and woodlands back to their former glories! Trout, Watervole, Kingfishers and Otters were once common visitors to the site, but numbers have steadily declined in the last 25 years.

After just 12 months of this project, we are already seeing the difference! More wildlife has been spotted such as; Green and Spotted Woodpeckers, Tawny and Barn Owls, 9 species of Bat and even more recently, Otters. 

Sarah Kessell, of the Welsh Wildlife Trust, has been working with Step Into the Wild on a number of different projects, such as; reinstating the Kenson River, and the re-establishment of saltmarsh meadows (an extremely rare but important UK habitat). Future planned projects include substantial tree re-planting and the possible re-introduction of native animal species!
