Biodiversity in trust
With 225 kilometres of coastline, three quarters of the
endangered remnant of montane heath, and nearly 50,000 hectares of
Welsh countryside in its ownership, no organisation is better
placed to do more for the natural environment than the National
Trust. In the past, its nature conservation performance has been
patchy at best. Now the National Trust in Wales has set out its
commitment to nature in the form of a Biodiversity Strategy.

vision for nature in Wales.
