£1.3 million funding to support nature in Cardiff

Cardiff’s Local Nature Partnership has secured £1.3 million from the Welsh Government’s ‘Local Places for Nature’ fund.

The money will mean the partnership can:

  1. continue its programme of pollinator-friendly planting,

  2. help create and restore wildlife habitats,

  3. improve how grassland in parks and open spaces is managed for biodiversity,

  4. help community groups make their local green spaces more nature-friendly.

The paetnership has already planted thousands of ‘bee-friendly’ bulbs, installed green ‘living walls’ at schools and community centres, and helped communities in Cardiff take practical action to support biodiversity.

Cardiff Council cabinet member Councillor Jennifer Burke, said: “With nature in decline globally, this two-year funding is really important and means two more years where we can continue to our work to support the nature on our doorstep, here in Cardiff.”

Cardiff’s Local Nature Partnership is part of a Wales-wide nature recovery network.
