Buglife Cymru

The breath-taking landscapes and habitats of Wales support a wide diversity and abundance of wildlife – from our miles and miles of coastline to the uplands of Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons, sea cliffs, sand dunes, heathlands, grasslands, woodlands, brownfield land and farmland together create a unique mosaic of habitats that support a diversity of invertebrates.

Find out more about the unique invertebrates you can find in Wales, current projects and surveys Buglife runs in the region and our involvement with the local organisations and government.
