Christmas 2019 Appeal

Personal Info

Donation Total: £5.00

raise money to save hedgehogsOur 2019 Christmas appeal this year is to raise funds to buy 100 sacks of hedgehog food for local hedgehog hospitals. Please help with a small donation. Together we can help hedgehogs survive the winter months.

Many volunteer wildlife rescuers are currently very busy with lots of under-nourished juvenile hedgehogs. A mild year means many hedgehogs have had 2 litters. Those hoglets born in the autumn have not had a chance to put on weight to hibernate.

NRW responds to pollution incident

09/05/2018 0 By wildfeed

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is investigating a major pollution incident which is thought to have killed a significant number of fish in the River Clywedog near Wrexham.

Officers from NRW were on site last night (Tuesday 4 September) and this morning (Wednesday 5 September) to carry out an investigation into the source.   

A stretch of about 9km of the river has been affected leading to a significant loss of fish within the Clywedog.

Anthony Randles, Natural Resource Management Team Leader from NRW, said: 

“Protecting Wales’ rivers and the wildlife that relies on them is one of the most important jobs that we do, so it’s important to deal with pollution incidents as quickly as possible.

“The pollutant has had a significant effect on fish and river life.

“Our officers remain on site to collect water samples for analysis and to assess the impact on the environment and wildlife. We will continue to investigate how this pollution happened and will take appropriate enforcement action if necessary.”

If you see any incidents of pollution or fish in distress please report it to our incident hot line on 0300 065 3000.
