Mapping Welsh Orchards

The People's Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) is co-ordinating a project to map the traditional orchards of Wales. Orchards are hotspots for biodiversity and support a wide range of wildlife including many species which are nationally rare or scarce, including the noble chafer beetle.

The trust needs the help of local volunteers and land owners, orchard groups, wildlife trusts, parish councils and agricultural colleges. Do you own, manage or know of a local orchard that should be included in our project, or have time to spare to help survey traditional orchards in your local area? No experience is necessary and PTES will provide training packs. To get involved please call 020 7498 4533 or email Lauren@ptes.org or Steve@ptes.org read more
