Founded in 1972, the Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. It has four main aims and objectives:
- Preventing further loss of ancient woodland
- Restoring and improving woodland biodiversity
- Expanding the area of new native woods
- Increasing people’s understanding and enjoyment of woods
At present it is trying to raise sufficient money to purchase almost 400 hectares (1,000 acres) of existing conifer woodland at Cwm Mynach within Snowdonia National Park, a site of extraordinary wildlife abundance, with buzzards, ravens, owls and otters.
