Our projects

The Wye Valley National Landscapes Team, based in Monmouth, carry out collaborative projects, working closely with organisations, communities and individuals. We run projects that help to conserve and enhance the National Landscape’s cultural and natural heritage, including: 

  • Landscape enhancement and protection
  • Wildlife conservation and management, with a focus on nature recovery
  • Forging partnerships with those who have an impact on the environment
  • Finding funding for essential conservation and enhancement work
  • Raising awareness of the value of our unique environment, the significance of the designation, the threats and solutions
Here are some of our current projects. For past projects click here.

Priority Species Project 

We have identified a 5 priority species for the Wye Valley National Landscape that reflect the key habitats found here.

One of the species is the hedgehog and we’re running a campaign called Wye Hedgehogs, working with our fantastic local Wye Hedgehog Hero Dylan Allman, the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and People’s Trust for Endangered Species to make the Wye Valley the most hedgehog friendly National Landscape!

Wye Valley National Landscape Volunteers

With a regular programme undertaking conservation and enhancement tasks – sociable and satisfying!

Volunteers are needed for a wide range of activities throughout the year, from tree and hedge planting, vegetation clearance, drystone walling to scything meadows and installing footpath gates.
