The Meirionnydd region of North West Wales is home to some of the best examples of Atlantic Oak Woodland in Europe. This unique habitat is rich in biodiversity and is highly valued by the local people as a place of work and a place of unrivalled beauty to relax in. Few areas can boast beautiful beaches, cliffs, valleys, rivers, woodlands and mountains all within a 10 mile radius.
The woodlands are now the focus of an innovative partnership working to restore, protect and expand them – the Meirionnydd Oakwoods Habitat Management Project.
This work is bringing new employment to communities, enriching wildlife habitats and
improving access to the forests so that people can experience a unique
closeness to nature and wildlife unrivalled in Europe.
