Update May 2023 - We have some super news about our rewilding project, we have raised half of what we need to purchase land for 'a green and safe space.'
Our aim was for £150,000 so we are applying for grants that will help us to fund the project and purchase the land. There is so much to do but the importance of being able to move forward with this essential protection of flora, fauna and people is spurring us on!
Thank you for ALL your support.
Our new name Forget-Me-Not Environmental, Wildlife and Animal Protection (quite a mouthful) is due to the fact that over the last 13 years we have seen a dramatic change in the area in which we live, rural Wales.
We have managed our land without any chemicals and seen a difference this can make. Our small lake and two small ponds are an invaluable habitat for both flora and fauna. We have at least seven species of bird that The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) have classed as decreasing in number and that they are concerned about. Nesting birds include the goldcrest (smallest bird in the UK), buzzards, long-tailed tits and song thrush plus many more. We have great crested newts, water voles and several species of damselflies, dragonflies, Noctule bats (largest bat in the UK) and many other species of wildlife.
Whilst we continue with our rescue work we are looking to save another few acres from being built upon. Recently we saw 8 acres were for sale and the estate agents actually specified it would be great for building upon, sadly this seems to be an ongoing problem and once this is done these precious habitats are gone forever.
We are looking to raise as much as we can to fund this new project which will last indefinitely; hopefully for many generations to come. We want to make this a community project encouraging all ages to come and join in with organic gardening, growing fruit and veg, having a peaceful place to just be quiet or meet like-minded people. It will also be a rehoming point for hens every six weeks or so - volunteers welcome for all aspects of this project.
Once we have the funding in place we will be able to buy the land and our project can start in earnest - watch this ''green space".
