Project: RWT Pentwyn

A place of hope for people and nature

Imagine a landscape buzzing, chirping and crawling with wildlife. A landscape that brings and maintains hope- hope for a better world for nature and people.

The land at Pentwyn will be transformed into a humming, buzzing and chirruping oasis where the calls of threatened birds can be heard once more.

Wild Mosaic is part of a wider campaign to support the restoration of full Pentwyn site (65 hectacres). You can find out more and other ways to help at rwtwales.org

Support the project

RWT Pentwyn consists of 4 plots broken into 3x3m squares ("tiles") of land. In order to support the restoration of the land, each tile is individually available to sponsor for a small fee.
